first most important stretch is hamstring stretch.this kind of stretch can perform in 2 different ways.(1) you can bend on one leg and keep other leg straight in front of you (2) split your legs apart like an straight arrow.Both stretches are a great way to stretch your hamstrings, which are the muscles on the back of your thigh that can cause low back discomfort if they are too tight. To make the stretch more intense, pull you toe towards your body, flex your quads, and reach as far as you can.

Of all the stretches listed, this one you may consider doing while standing while holding on to your foot with both hands. I included the lying quad stretch because the theme is doing all the stretching exercises on the ground, but try it out and see what you think. The further you bring your knee backwards, the more intense the stretch. The quadriceps are muscles on the front of your leg.


thus above 4 exercises are best exercise for legs .while performing these stretching try not to pressurize more on muscles do these activity slowly and then increase the pressures.
