Treadmill Stretch: Leaning Quad

As I've said before, I love to do a few stretches on the treadmill after a run. If you feel funny about it, you can always do this stretch while leaning on a chair. This will open your quads, your hip flexors, and your shoulders.


  • Hold on to the front of the treadmill or the back of a chair.
  • Bend your left knee and bring your foot behind you. Grab onto the front of your left foot with your left hand, pulling the sole of your foot into your buns.
  • Now lean forward, trying to keep your left leg straight. The more you lean, the more you'll feel it in your left quad, hip flexor, and your right hamstring.
  • Hold this stretch for at east 30 seconds and then do the other side.
