Lying Down Glute Stretch - Martial Arts Stretching Technique

This page provides details for the Lying Down Glute Stretch or Lying Glute Stretch. This stretch technique helps to stretch muscles such as the glutes, hips and lower back. This stretch also helps to improve the flexibility needed for high kicks (i.e. axe kicks). For high axe kicks, martial artists should also work on their hamstring stretches. The Lying Down Glute Stretch is also known as the Figure 4 Stretch.

All stretches should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches page.
