How to do Single Leg Stretch

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, glutes, quadriceps


Start by lying on your back with your legs flat on the floor. Then bring one knee up into your chest, and hold your shin with your hands. Use your arms then to pull this bent leg in towards your chest as much as you can. During the stretch, lift your shoulders and head up off the floor. Your spare leg should hover just above the floor.

Swap sides after the required duration.
