Bosu leg exercises- stretches- Series 13

Leg Stretches

1.Sit on Bosu. Feet flat on floor and knees are bent. Now, fold and place one foot on the bent knee.

Bend the torso forward. You will feel the stretch on the gluteus region of the leg which is folded and placed on top.

2. Extend one leg straight out. Point and flex you toe. When you flex your foot, you will feel the stretch in the calf muscle of the leg which is straight. You can also bend forward to grab hold of your toe with your hand. The aim should be to take the chest down towards the knee and not just hold the foot. This is a good stretch for hamstring. Then change the leg and repeat on the other leg.

3. Standing on top of Bosu, start bending one leg.

Grab hold of the foot making sure to keep both the knees aligned. Attempt this only if you are sure of your balance on top of Bosu. Or else take a support. This is a good stretch for quadriceps.

4. Stand on top of Bosu. Now step forward and bring your one foot ahead down on the floor while the other stays on Bosu. Raise up the back heel and lower the knee down. Tilt the pelvis forward to feel the stretch in your hip flexors. Then switch the legs.
