How to Complete the Quad Grinder

The Best Quad Stretch

Most of us have SUPER tight thighs (known as our “quad” muscles) because we stay in static positions like sitting all day. Because of this any movement that needs us to jump, land, skip, or accelerate is compromised and we can’t generate the same amount of power. Because of this, it is time for YOU to unlock and unglue the front of those thighs with the “quad grinder” exercise! Here is exactly how to complete the best quad stretch, the Quad Grinder.

Exercise
Lie on your belly with a ball under your mobilizing leg. Press your leg into the ball and BEND your knee (moving your ankle towards your bum) along the length of your thigh.

Time

Do this for 2 minutes a day.
