The Heel to Glute Stretch Improves Your Balance and Flexibility

This stretch helps to improve the dynamic flexibility of your quadriceps and hip flexors. It is a great warmup exercise before your run.

  • Squat slightly on your left leg.
  • Use your left hand to take hold of your right foot, in order to lift up it and your right leg gently towards your glutes. Raise your right arm overhead for balance.
  • Straighten your leg, and hold for 10-20 seconds. Take care not to arch your back.
  • Repeat this process for the opposite side.
  • Repeat 1 to 2 reps for each side.

If you find trouble balancing, try to use your free arm to brace against a wall for better balance!
