How much do you stretch? Part I Lower Body

Mar 21, 2017 Eric Toussaint 6 Comments

By far I would have to say that stretching is the most overlooked part of most exercise enthusiasts programs. There just never seems to be enough time. Personally I have to stretch to keep up with my martial arts training, but am just a challenged when it comes to time available.

Here are some simple lower body stretches that I try to perform two to three times a week.

Perform each stretch 2-3 times, hold for 60-90 seconds.

Kneeling Hip flexor stretch:

Piriformis stretch:

Lotus stretch:
I would recommend a progressions with the lotus, I struggle with this one

Hamstring stretch on raise object:

Quad Stretch:

Straddle Split:
I recommend a progression as well
