Stretch It: Iliotibial Band With Legs Crossed

If you're looking for a stretch that targets your iliotibial Band (ITB) on your outer thigh and your obliques, this stretch is a must. It's similar to the iliotibial band on the wall, but you'll feel this one in your waist more. It is great post-run stretch too.

If you're curious to know how to do this stretch, then

.

  • Stand with your left side facing a wall, with your feet together.
  • Place your left forearm on the wall and step your left foot behind your right leg (plant your foot flat). Lean into the arm on the wall, gently pressing your left hip toward the wall to feel an intense stretch along the side of your left thigh and abdomen.
  • Hold here for 30 seconds, then release and do this stretch on the other side.

Try it and let me know if you like it in the comments section below.

I got a great waist stretch from this, but not so much of an ITB stretch. Definitely good for stretching out your obliques though!
