Lateral Lunge Stretch | DNA Physical Therapy | Dr. Nader Amer DPT Summary: Start in a standing position with your feet together and your hands on your hips.
- Take a large step to the side with one foot, keeping the other foot in its original position.
- As you step, bend the knee of the stepping leg into a lunge, pushing your hips back and keeping the other leg straight.
- Hold the lunge position for a few seconds, feeling the stretch along the inner thigh of your straight leg and the muscles of your bent leg.
- Push off the bent leg to return to the starting position and repeat on the other side to complete one rep.
Focus: Stretch in the groin/inner thigh and quads/calves
