May 10th, 2023 9:11 AM Mr. Q Categories: Stretching
The knee to chest exercise is a simple stretch that targets the lower back muscles and the glutes.
- Lie on your back with your legs extended.
- Bend your right knee and bring it towards your chest, using both hands to pull your knee towards your chest.
- Hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds and then release.
- Repeat on the other leg.
- Continue alternating between legs for the desired number of repetitions.
How to reduce difficulty: If you find the stretch difficult, you can bend your knee less and hold your leg closer to your thigh instead of pulling your knee towards your chest.
How to increase difficulty: To increase the intensity of the stretch, you can hold the stretch for a longer period of time or use a resistance band to add tension.
Number of reps: Beginner: 2 sets of 15-30 seconds per leg Intermediate: 3 sets of 30 seconds per leg Advanced: 4 sets of 45 seconds per leg
Estimated time for exercise: 2-3 minutes
