Ball Thigh Stretch

Primary Muscle Group: Backs of thighs

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise:

Preparation: Stand with your feet directly under your hips. Hold the ball 1-2 feet in front of you.

Breathing: Exhale as you bend forward; inhale as you rise back to start.

Execution: Bend forward from your hips and place both palms on top of the ball. Exhale and bend forward a little bit more as you move the ball forward along the floor in front of you. Hold this deep bend for 20 to 30 seconds as you breathe normally. Inhale back to starting position.

Comments: This lengthens the backs of your thighs and doesn't place additional stress on your lower back.
