Front Thigh Stretch - Standing - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018

The quadriceps are a group of four muscles located on the front of the thighs. These are responsible for hip flexion and knee extension. All four muscles have different starting points around the pelvis, but they all join together at the knee to form the patella tendon that holds the knee cap in its place. For this reason, quadriceps muscles can be involved in hip and knee issues.
Passive stretching is a technique that aims to lengthen the musculo-tendinous tissues with the use of some sort of external assistance such as a towel, resistance band, bodyweight or even a training partner. Experts typically recommend avoiding passive stretches just before physical activities, using them instead as a cool down or recovery day tool.
