QUADS AND HIP FLEXORS STRETCHES
Learn how to stretch the Quads & Hip Flexors with these simple video static & dynamic stretching examples.
Many people tend to have overly active quads & very tight hip flexors to compensate for a lack of glutes’ strength. Tension in this area may contribute to misalignment of the pelvis, lower back pain & hip pain after running & exercise.
Make sure you add both quads stretch & hip flexors exercises to your workout routine, especially if you love running or cycling or if you do any other strenuous cardio exercise/ strength training. They can help you to prevent sports injuries & improve your performance.
We recommend to include Dynamic Stretching at the beginning of your workouts. Dynamic stretches are active movements which help to warm up your joints safely, activate and loosen up your back muscles, improving flexibility and preventing injury.
For your post-exercise cooldown routine, we recommend Static stretches (which are usually held for 10 to 30 seconds) or learn how to use a foam roller on the quads, as foam rolling this area is very simple and highly effective!
