- Lie supine on floor or mat. Raise knees and grasp back of
thighs behind knees.
- Pull knee toward shoulders or to side of torso while keeping
opposite leg on floor. Hold stretch.
- Keeping lower leg straight keeps pelvis from tilting so upper
knee does not have to come back as far. Gluteus
Maximus is stretched if hips are slightly external rotated.
Femoris become stretched if hip is slightly transversely
adducted (knee toward opposite side of chest).
