Prone Quad Stretch
This page provides details for the Prone Quad Stretch. This stretch is used by martial arts students in order to loosen their quad muscles.
With this stretch, you lie on your side or on your stomach. Since the Prone Quad Stretch is done on the floor, it does not have the instability disadvantage (or the balance training advantage) associated with the Standing Quad 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.
