Standing Quad Stretch

Standing quad stretch

Verywell / Ben Goldstein

The quadriceps (quads) are a group of muscles along the front of the thigh. There are many different ways to stretch your quadriceps, but here is a simple one you can do while standing:

  • Stand on one leg (grab onto something solid if you need support).
  • Bend your knee and bring your heel toward your buttock.
  • Reach for your ankle with your hand.
  • Stand up straight and feel a slight pull along the front of your thigh and hip.
  • Hold the stretch for 20-30 seconds, release, and repeat on the other leg.
  • Be careful not to strain your kneeā€”the goal is not to touch your heel to the buttock, but rather to stretch the thigh.
