This stretch builds directly off of last week’s stretch. You start in the exact same position with all of the applicable rules of alignment. From there, reach the left hand up to the sky and get as long as possible. Keep the length in the body as you twist and reach around for the right foot with the left hand. Keep leaning the hips forward as you turn the chest even more to the left. Carefully pull the right heel in toward your bottom to create greater stretch in the quads.
If this is too intense, stick with last week’s exercise for the hip flexor. If you’re that tight, chances are last week’s stretch is enough to get both the psoas and quads.
**Pro tip: if you’re über flexible, try dropping the right elbow down to the ground on the inside of the left knee. It’s guaranteed to be the deepest quad stretch you’ve ever tried!injury prevention, pain, rehab, sports medicine
