Toe Mobilisation - Seated - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The toes assist in ambulation and movement such as walking, running, jumping, etc. Toes also function to improve balance, support bodyweight and propel you forward. A great way to reduce fall-risk potential and improve mobility is to ensure the toes are agile and flexible. Hands-on mobilisation of the toes improves the overall health of your toes.
Don’t forget to give all your toes a good inspection during this exercise. Look for any damage to the toenails and check for cuts, blisters or rough skin. Visit your local podiatrist for evaluation and self-care instructions as needed.


Shin Muscle Stretch - Standing - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


Muscles of the anterior compartment of the shin work primarily to lift the foot upwards towards the shin. This is a critical movement for walking and running. Inefficiency of these muscles often cause “shin splints”. Regular stretching and strengthening of the shin muscles will reduce the likelihood of injury.
Passive stretching is a technique that aims to lengthen the musculo-tendinous tissues with the use of some sort of external assistance such as a towel, resistance band, bodyweight or even a training partner. Experts typically recommend avoiding passive stretches just before physical activities, using them instead as a cool down or recovery day tool.


Front Hip Stretch - Seated - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The hip flexor muscles allow forward bending at the hips and let you stand tall while moving the leg forward for walking, running and jumping. Chronic hip flexor spasm is very common for anyone who sits for many hours per day. Flexible hip flexors help improve mobility of the hips and low back.

Inner Thigh Stretch - Seated - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The adductor muscles of the inner hip and thigh are responsible for pulling the leg inward towards the midline of the body. In other words, if you squeeze your legs together, you are using your adductor muscles. Flexible adductors will help improve hip mobility.

Hold-Relax technique stretching is called Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching that can trigger a reflex response. This enhances communication between the muscle fibres and the brain. PNF is viewed as one of the most effective stretching methods to improve range of motion.


Front Thigh Stretch - Standing - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The quadriceps are a group of four muscles located on the front of the thighs. These are responsible for hip flexion and knee extension. All four muscles have different starting points around the pelvis, but they all join together at the knee to form the patella tendon that holds the knee cap in its place. For this reason, quadriceps muscles can be involved in hip and knee issues.

Hamstring Stretch - Lying On Back - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The hamstring muscles are located on the back of the thighs and are responsible for hip extension and knee flexion. Tight hamstrings are prevalent in people who sit for long hours and cause limited movement of the low back and legs.
