Half-Kneeling Quadriceps Stretch (Ball) With an exercise ball behind you and stabilized against a wall, kneel on the floor and place the leg you would like to stretch against the ball. Your foot, ankle, and shin should rest against the ball and your knee should rest on the floor, with a pillow underneath if needed. While maintaining straight posture, shift your weight backwards, squeezing your leg against the ball, until you feel a stretch across the top of your thigh.
