Big Muscles, Big Responsibility

Did you know that quadriceps means “four heads”? This term of reference includes the four front thigh muscles that join at the quadriceps tendon to attach onto the kneecap. Quadriceps are some of the largest muscles in the body. You may have noticed their girth in marathon runners and weightlifters.

Our quadriceps have a tremendous capacity for strengthening our legs; however, yoga teaches us the importance of balancing length with strength, and we know that the rounder a muscle becomes, the less flexible it is. Like any muscle, our quads get tight from overuse (excessive weight training, climbing, cycling and jogging) or underuse (too much sitting, lack of exercise or knee injury).
