Adductor Stretch - Standing

This groin stretch mainly stretches the long groin muscles which run from the pelvis down to the knee. Isolating the shorter groin muscles can be achieved with a bent knee groin stretch.

Teaching Points:

  • To stretch the groin muscles, the athlete stands with a wide stance
  • The knee is then bend out to the side, keeping the involved knee straight, until a stretch is felt in the groin.
  • This should not be painful! If it is, stop and rest, don't stretch into pain.
  • Hold for 20-30 seconds, rest and repeat 2-3 times.
