Mini stork

This is an exercise to stretch the quads muscle. Eventually, one should be able to grasp the ankle from behind and pull it into full flexion - but this is useful when full flexion has not yet been achieved. Remember that stretches need to be done slowly and held for a few seconds.

 


 

In case you cannot see the video, here is a still sequence -
