Step 1. Kneel on your right knee. Place your left leg in front of you, bending your knee and placing your left hand hand on your left leg for stability. Keep your back straight and abdominal muscles tight.

Step 2. Move your hips forward, keeping your back straight and perpendicular to the ground. You will feel a stretch in your right thigh.

Step 3. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Continue to breath rhythmically and slowly. Do not hold your breath.

Step 4. Ease out of the stretch, switch legs, and repeat.


The groin stretch is the primary stretch for working the groin and inner thigh area. This one is better than one that stretches both sides of the muscle at the same time because it prevents one side from being limited by a less flexible other side. The user should be careful not to stretch too far or stretch too hard. This can do more harm than good. Stretching is important and should be incorporated in all exercise routines. Stretching can help limit injury to the ligaments and muscles. By stretching the muscle before working out, you can actually lift more weight.
