This is an awesome combo stretch for multiple muscles, joints and tissues on the opposite legs. It’s a safe stretching technique to improve the mobility of the hip flexor, anterior hip and quadriceps on one leg and the hamstrings, calf, glutes and posterior hip capsule on the opposite leg. For those of you who have difficulty stretching in standing or kneeling, this supine position is a good way to improve the mobility of multiple soft tissues.
Optimal mobility of the hips and lower extremity muscles is very important for a healthy spine. A word of caution for those of you who have an acute low back injury, be careful when stretching the hamstrings and calf since you will tension the sciatic nerve as well.
