Inner Thigh Squat Stretch Exercise

Starting Position

Stand tall with back straight, feet wider than the hips, toes turned out, abs engaged and arms at your sides.

Action

Slowly bend the knees, squatting straight down, hands supported on your thighs, until you feel a stretch through the inner thighs.

Breathe deeply and hold for 10-30 seconds.

Special Instructions

Stretch to the point of "mild discomfort," not to the point of pain. Never bounce. Keep your shoulders relaxed and your back straight. Don’t allow your knees to move past your toes (if that happens, take feet out wider).
