Stretches are demonstrated for the following lower body groups: the hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, feet, abductors, Quadratus lumborum, lower back and abdominals. Each stretch uses different planes and angles to explore range of motion. The stretches can be progressed or regressed to suit clients' needs and fitness level. Anatomical terms and alignment principles are discussed and applied to achieve greater anatomical knowledge.
