Stretching Exercises (9 of 13)

Quadriceps Stretch

  1. Keeping your back straight, grab the top of your left foot with your left hand.
  2. Pull your heel toward your butt.
  3. Hold the stretch 10 to 15 seconds.
  4. Repeat on the other side.
(For a greater challenge, balance on one foot without holding on to anything for support.)

Stretching makes your muscles and joints flexible, preventing injuries, and stopping your muscles from cramping. Flexibility also allows you to move your muscles through their full range of motion. That helps you jump higher, reach further, and run faster.
