Is your sartorius ready to go?

Posted by on Jan 29, 2020 in Exercises, Stretches

While the glutes and hamstrings often get a lot of attention in athletics, other muscles require just as much care to keep us at our best — whether running, jumping, dancing, or swimming. This week, we’re taking a look at one of those very muscles: a hip flexor called the sartorius, which spans all the way from the hip to the knee.  
In our Quick Tip this week, Derek and Jenny will demonstrate how to effectively stretch this important muscle. The Sartorius Stretch is an active one, and great for runners, swimmers, tennis players, and anyone doing a lot of running and kicking! So incorporate it into your routine, and let us know what you notice. If you need more support getting your legs into shape, reach out to our intake specialists. We’ll recommend a bodyworker who can support your goals and needs.
