Cross-Leg Stretch

Cross-Leg Stretch

By John Atkins
posted: 10/19/1998

How to do it Sit in a chair with both feet on the floor. Cross your right leg over your left leg (the right knee is bent). Place your left hand on the outside of the right knee and push the knee in as far as the stretch allows. Look over your right shoulder, slowly turning the trunk and head in the same direction. Perform 2-3 repetitions, holding each repetition for 15-20 seconds, and then repeat on the other side.

What it does This stretches the muscle cord along the outside of the leg (iliotibial band), the lower and upper back and the tendon. It loosens the hips-one of the most important body parts in skiing. Loose hips allow you to get your skis out from under you while keeping your upper body facing down the fall line.
