mp3j track=”sound@821.mp3″ flip=”y”]

  • Take a big step backwards with the leg you wish to stretch. Keep the knee straight.
  • You may want to place your hands flat against a wall for support.
  • Make sure the foot of the back leg is pointing directly forward as opposed to turned outwards.
  • Press the heel towards the floor and hold. If this stretch is too intense, move the back leg a little closer to the front leg.

Warm Up: 20 seconds

Main Stretch: 30 to 40 seconds

Repetitions: 2x daily
