Standing One Leg Thigh Stretch


  • Stand on one leg and bend the second leg back so you can hold it with your hand. You should use a wall for balance.
  • Slowly pull your foot closer to your glutes until you feel a stretch in the quadriceps.
  • Hold stretch for 20-30 seconds, then repeat with the other leg.


  • You can try to point your knee behind you to get a better stretch if you don't feel it with the knee straight down.
