Muscles stretched: quadriceps
Instructions: Lie on your side with both of your knees curled up against your chest (fetal position). Slide your bottom arm under the thigh of your bottom leg and place your hand around the outside of your foot. Grasp the ankle or foot of your top leg with your other hand. Contract your glutes and hamstrings to pull your heel towards your butt as far as you can, using your hand to give a gentle assist at the end of the stretch. Hold for 2 seconds, and then return to the starting position. Repeat 8-12 times, and then switch sides.
