Supine Leg Lengthener


The supine leg lengthener focuses on lengthening the body through the leg and hip to reduce pressure on the spine and help improve posture.

Set up

Begin lying on your back with legs straight, arms down by your sides. Bend your left knee.


Bend your left knee. Pull your toes and forefoot towards your nose as you reach the heel away from you. Hold for 5 seconds. Relax then repeat.


  • Draw your belly in as you reach your leg away from you.
  • Think about trying to make an impression of your foot in the far wall.
