Single Straight Leg Stretch

Single Straight Leg Stretch

This page provides details for the Single Straight Leg Stretch. This stretch helps to stretch your hamstrings, glutes and groin. This stretch also helps to improve the flexibility needed for high axe kicks.

In this stretch, you will lie on your back. You will slow raise one leg and move it up vertically. You can use your hands to slowly pull your leg towards your chest. Be careful not to over 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.
