Stretching is simple and quick, if you do it correctly. You can do it in about five minutes either after your workout, when you wake up in the morning or while your watching TV. Just do it - you won't regret it.
Here's a quick and easy stretch you can do anytime that does a lot of good. It's a quad stretch and also helps stretch your hip flexors. For golfers, you know it's key to a good follow through and finish to really be able to open up your hips. Here's how to accomplish the Standing Quad Stretch:
- Find stable ground.
- Either balance on one foot or rest your hand on a steady surface while you pull the top of your foot toward your butt. Don't worry if how close it gets.
- Focus on keeping your chin and chest high. You should feel a good stretch in your hip and quad.
- Hold this for 30 seconds. Then, do the same on the other side.
