Hurdler Stretch

Hurdler Stretch

This page provides details for the Hurdler Stretch (or Hurdler’s Stretch). This stretch is used by martial arts students in order to loosen their hamstringsgroinquadriceps, etc.

Students with knee problems should consider a modified hurdler stretch versus a traditional hurdler stretch. The modified hurdler stretch puts less pressure on the knee than the traditional hurdler stretch.

All stretches should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches page.
