Purpose: This is an exercise to stretch the quadriceps muscle at the front of the leg.
Instruction: Grab onto your ankle and pull your leg up towards your glutes until you feel a stretch at the front of your thigh. Hold the position for 30 seconds. Reverse position and repeat with other leg. For extra stretch, squeeze the glute of the leg you're stretching, and bend your foot up at the ankle.
Common Errors: Not keeping the hips square and forward - squeeze your glute to get an extra stretch. Stand up tall, not hunching forward, and if you struggle to grab your foot or ankle, grabbing your pant leg will work.
