Pirifirmis and External rotator stretching
This stretch will lengthen those muscles deep in the butt which are responsible for turning the leg externally. Often when shortened they restrict the foot from planting forward causing lift off from the head of the big toe. This would be recognised by a callous of thick skin and possible fallen arches with pain on the medial aspect of the knee joint line. A good place to perform this stretch is on the back of a medium height sofa.
Gluteus Maximus Stretching
This large muscle works very hard climbing stairs, walking uphill and running. Downhill walking and running it works hard as a shock absorber working the fast twich muscles. Early mornings and late evenings are a great time to hold this stretch for upwards of 1 minute. Hug the knee up in the direction of the opposite shoulder.
