Standing One-Leg Pike Stretch

  1. The back is straight, and the feet are placed apart. This is your starting position.
  2. From the starting position, smoothly reach toward each foot and hold a static contraction in peak point.
  3. One back leg is slightly bent, while the front leg is straight.
  4. Reach toward each foot.


  • Pre-workout stretching helps to warm up the muscles (both contracted and stretched) and prepare them to action.
  • Post-workout stretching helps to relax the muscles and remove metabolic wastes accumulated during muscles load. Muscle soreness will be reduced, and you will quickly recover.
  • If you don’t do workouts or any physical activity, we recommend to perform stretching exercises in the morning or at bedtime.
  • Do stretching exercises every day.
