Previous Next 8 of 8 Standing thigh stretch

You might also want to try standing stretches. To stretch the front of your thigh:

  • Stand up straight, placing one hand on a chair or desk for stability.
  • Grab one of your ankles — or your pant leg — and bring it up toward your buttock. Remember to maintain an upright position, keeping your back straight and your knees parallel to one another.
  • Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. You'll feel tension in the front of your thigh.
  • Relax and slowly return to the starting position.
  • Repeat the stretch with your other leg.
