Following on from our post “The truth about stretching”, we present “Limber Up” designed to provide you with demonstrations and explanations of ways to stretch your whole body using various stretching methods.
The quadriceps are a powerful muscle complex at the front of our thighs that are vital in almost every lower body activity. They are responsible for straightening and stabilising our knees and bringing our thigh forward in front of our body.
Due to the amount of work it has to do during exercise, it is important to stretch it dynamically during your warm up. Below is a video showing you an example of a dynamic stretch of your quadriceps.
