Walking Knee Hugs - Dynamic Stretching Technique

This page provides details for the dynamic stretch known as Walking Knee Hugs. This exercise is used to warm-up and stretch a person's hips, quads, calves, glutes and hamstrings. Walking knee hugs also help to improve an athlete's balance. Stretches used are used in martial arts in order to improve flexibility and to reduce the chance of potential training injuries (i.e. a pulled muscle).

With this dynamic stretch, an athlete will walk forward and alternate raising their right or left leg. They will grab their right or left upper shin with both hands and pulling the knee towards their chest.

All exercises and stretches should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional stretches and exercises, please visit the sections on Static Stretches and Dynamic Stretches.
