Knee Across Chest Stretch

Knee Across Chest Stretch

  • HOW: Begin by lying face-up with one arm around the opposite knee. Pull your knee over towards the arm that is pulling it, while keeping your chest facing the ceiling. The more you bring your knee towards your chest and the closer towards the floor you pull your leg, the deeper the stretch. Hold this position for as long as prescribed.
 
  • FEEL: You will feel a stretch on the outer hip region and potentially up towards your lower and middle back.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Avoid allowing your body to rotate as you perform this motion, allow most of the motion here to come from your hip.
