Quadricep Stretches

List of Quadricep Stretches

This page provides details on a variety of quadricep stretches used by martial arts students. These stretches loosen tight quadriceps and help to generate more powerful kicks. The quadriceps are the large thigh muscles on the front of your leg (between your knees and hips). Quadricep muscles are also known as quads.

All stretches should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order 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.
