Stretching your quadriceps and hamstrings can help prevent
anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
Do these stretches
gradually. Do not push or bounce the stretch. You should feel a stretch, not
pain. Exhale as you begin the stretch. While you hold the stretch, inhale.
Exhale as you relax.
Contract your stomach muscles during this stretch
so you do not arch your back.
