Quadriceps, Groin, and Hip Flexors

 Another great stretch that works many muscles through your upper legs, groin, and hips.

 1. Kneel on the floor with one leg forward and bent at near 90 degrees, while the other leg is extended behind you.

 2. Lean slightly forward and place your hands on your knee or on the floor near your lead foot.

 3. Maintaining a nearly straight rear leg and flat spine, slowly lower your hips a few inches toward the floor until you feel tension in the groin and quadriceps. Hold this position for ten seconds, then raise your hips slightly to release the stretch for a few seconds.

 4. Lower your hips to perform a secondary stretch for twenty to thirty seconds.

 5. Switch leg positions and repeat the stretch.
