The Quadriceps Stretch Prevents Your Thighs From Cramping While Running

The quadriceps muscles (your thighs) are one of the largest muscle groups in the body, and they play a major part when you’re running. It's important to stretch your thighs before a run to prevent cramping!

  • Kneel down on the floor.
  • Move your back slowly towards the direction of your heels.
  • Be sure to keep your arms to the side and hold this pose for 15 seconds. Be careful with your knees and do not overstretch.
  • Repeat 1 to 2 times.

When combined with the hamstring stretch [insert URL for “Hamstring Stretch Exercise Limbers You Up Before a Run!”], your legs will be relaxed before your run, reducing chances of injury.
