There’s no running without your leg muscles. Often taken for granted, our leg muscles endure hours of thumping, stretching, jumping and even falling. The grueling boot camp results to inevitable strains in the legs. Learn how to continue the jazz of running without stopping, as we show you how to address strain with RockTape. After all, there’s no winning without a little pain.

 

Quadriceps

  1. Lie down and relax. Drop your leg over the table/bed and flex your knee. Anchor the stabilization tape at the top of your thigh and run to area above knee. Apply little to no stretch.
  2. Apply a decompression tape on thigh using middle stretch, bisecting area of pain/fatigue. Give it a 50-75% stretch in the middle, with no stretch at both ends.

 

 

 


 

Hamstrings Strain

  1. Place knee into extension and flex your hip. This will preload the hamstring. Apply stabilization strip over the area with little to no stretch.
  2. Now apply a decompression strip bisecting the area of pain.

 

 


 

Adductor

Lie on your back and relax. Bend both your knees in a sit-up position. Rotate your leg outward to stretch groin/adductor area. Anchor a stabilization tape at the top of thigh and run the tape to the area just above the knee on medial side. Apply little to no stretch.

Now apply a decompression tape using middle stretch, bisecting area of pain. Stretch the tape about 50-75% in the middle, with no stretch at both ends.
