A Different And Effective Way To Stretch Your Quads

Here’s a quad stretch you might not have thought of. It’s one I love to do. We do it a lot in dance classes.

NOTE: If you have any knee issues I’d suggest avoiding this stretch.


  1. Sit, with legs bent, left leg in front, right leg behind (see photo)
  2. Lean toward your left side, so that you can rest on your elbow. (If that feels too hard then you can stay up on your left wrist)
  3. Place your right hand just above your right bum, and gently help guide your right hip forward by pushing it with your hand (you should feel a stretch in your right quad)
  4. You can keep that position (keep pushing that right hip forward) while raising your right arm and moving it around, or over to the side, for a side stretch.
  5. Hold for at least 30 seconds.
  6. Repeat on the other side.

Oh yeah, ps, how’s my baby belly?! 🙂
