Squatting Adductor Stretch

The squatting adductor stretch will help you move and run faster as an athlete. You should do this stretch every day to help avoid those painful groin injuries.

The adductors assist with hip flexion, hip extension, and lateral rotation. They also help to stabilize the legs during running. The adductors are usually much tighter in men than in women. Groin pulls are usually related to fatigue or improper stretching of the adductor longus.

1. Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width apart.

2. Keep one leg straight and toes facing forward while bending the other leg and turning your toes out to the side. You will feel the stretch along your inner thigh.

Avoid those painful and hard-to-recover-from groin injuries!
