Raised Leg Knee Ankle Shoulder and Back Stretch

Knee and Thigh Stretches: Changing the hand position to grasp the toes shifts the stretch to other muscles.

Method:
Stand upright with weight balanced on the left leg. Flex the right hip and place the right leg (with the knee straight) on a table, bench, or other stable object that is approximately the same height as the hips. Bend at the waist, extend your arms over the lower right leg, and lower the head toward the right leg, keeping the right knee as straight as possible. While bending forward, slide the hands toward the feet, grasp the feet, and pull the toes slowly toward the knees (dorsiflexed position).
