Sartorius Stretch for Runners
Usually when we think about the muscles of the anterior thigh, we immediately think about the quadriceps muscles (vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis and rectus femoris). It is important however that we don’t neglect sartorius.
Much like rectus femoris, the sartorius muscle of the thigh crosses both the hip and the knee, but unlike rec.fem. it’s contraction causes external rotation, abduction and flexion of the hip. This to stretch sartorius we need to find a position that combines internal rotation, adduction and extension of this hip.
The sartorius stretch in the video above achieves the combined movements to target the sartorius muscle brilliantly. Give it a go and let me know how you get on by leaving a comment below!
