High Knee Pull – Exercise of the Week

High Knee Pulls – Exercise of the Week

The High Knee Pull exercise is a dynamic stretching exercise you can use before each of your workouts. Dynamic stretching is used to increase the range of movement, blood and oxygen flow to soft tissues prior to exertion and helps reduce the chances of injury.

  • This exercise is similar to the Running High Knees exercise except that we are slowing the action down to a walk and adding in a further dynamic stretch.
  • The purpose of the high knee pulls is to stretch the gluets, quads, lower back and shoulders.
  • Perform this exercise by walking in an upright position and stay on the balls of your feet.
  • Drive your knees up as high as possible, and then grab your knee to pull the knee as high as possible without leaning backwards.
  • Hold the stretch for a moment before returning the leg back down and swapping legs.
