ADDUCTORS (GROIN) STRETCHES
Here are some simple video static & dynamic stretching examples to learn how to stretch the Adductors, better known as the Groin area! Adductor muscles tend to be very stiff, especially in men. Tension in this area may contribute to misalignment of the pelvis, lower back pain & hip pain after running & exercise.
Make sure you add groin stretches to your exercise routine, especially if you love running or cycling or if you do any other strenuous cardio exercise/ strength training. They can help you to prevent sports injuries & improve your performance.
We recommend to include Dynamic Stretching at the beginning of your workouts. Dynamic stretches are active movements which help to warm up your joints safely, activate and loosen up your back muscles, improving flexibility and preventing injury.
On the contrary, Static stretches are usually held for 10 to 30 seconds and don't involve active movement. Therefore if your muscles are cold, don’t perform static stretches as you may pull some muscles, and only do them post-exercise.
