Side Kick Stretch

The only muscles involved in the side leg raise are the abductors and adductors. Maintaining the leg in the raised position without assistance will result in a static active stretch. An isometric stretch of the adductor muscles can be done by pulling the leg downwards while being held in this raised position. Turning the toes upwards can produce an isometric or static passive stretch of the sartorius muscle, depending on its condition. Correct posture will not involve the standing leg at all.
