Hits the rectus femoris, both hip flexor and quad. Possibly my favorite stretch, ever. If you google it, try some of the links that aren't crossfit related...there used to be some really good ones out there, but I need to do some more digging to find them.
Oh my goodness gracious that is hands down the best stretch ever!!!
The PT who showed it to me is an elite marathon runner. She is my hero!
This link is pretty good: https://bare5.com/2015/09/13/the-couch-stretch/
I will get right on that!
I've got the couch potato stretch mastered.
Dude, you ran! And it didn't hurt! Yay!
