Seated Biceps Stretch
This page provides details for the Seated Biceps Stretch (or Seated Bent Knee Biceps Stretch). This stretch is used by martial arts students in order to loosen their biceps muscles. The biceps are located in front of the arm and run from the shoulder to the elbow. Biceps muscles are used in some punching techniques (i.e. hook punch). More importantly, they are used in a wide variety of grappling techniques (in order to pull an opponent in and/or turn them).
Biceps stretches are used to warm up the biceps before martial arts training and any biceps exercises. 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.
