Mobility Monday | Ep10 | Half-kneeling rec-fem stretch
Today’s episode will be covering one of my favourite stretches for knee, and lower back pain.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
- The quads are categorised into four separate muscles; vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, rectus femoris and vastus lateralis.
- Rec fem (rectus femoris) is critical to keep mobile as it crosses the knee and hip aiding in knee extension and hip flexion.
CUES FOR THE DRILL:
- As mentioned in the video, keep the glutes locked on and don’t compensate with lack of hip extension with lumber extension.
- Keep tension through your “core” which will also help resist against excessive extension through the spine.
I hope this easy and effective stretch can help you to keep performing happily and healthy!
