Active Straight Leg Raise Corrective Exercises

The active straight leg raise movement pattern requires continuous core stability, active mobility of the flexed hip, active flexibility of the hamstring and soleus of the leg being raised, and active extension of the other leg. Any deficiency here will negatively impact your running, and may cause cycling problems as well.
