If you’re looking for a great way to help stretch your IT Band without having to get on the floor, try the IT Band stretch with a lean.

To perform the IT Band stretch with lean:

  1. Stand next to a wall or something sturdy with the side you want to stretch closest to the wall. Cross the leg you want to stretch behind the other leg.

  2. Take the hip of the side you are stretching and lean it towards the wall like you are trying to touch the wall with your hip. Hold the stretch.
