We're going to show you some lengthening stretches that you can do for the thigh or quad. So to begin we're going to do single leg kicks so we want to make sure that our back is arched up but we want to be thinking about lengthening through the spine so thinking out and up with the head and the spine. Shoulders are in line with your wrists and elbows and we're going to make sure that our feet are parallel width apart. We're going to kick the leg twice, inhale as you kick and lengthen it out. Kick, kick and lengthen out. Inhale, inhale, exhale out. Inhale, inhale, exhale out. Something that you can do while you are in this position is go ahead and lay one side of your cheek down, grab the leg and pull it towards you. You can do the other side as well and the last one I'm going to show you is the double leg kicks. So from here lay down, hands come behind your back. You are going to kick both legs in, kick, kick and stretch everything out and long. Cheek goes to the other side, repeat and those are some exercises that you can do to lengthen the thigh or quad.
