Common Groin Stretching Mistake (and solution)

This is a common groin/adductor stretching mistake that is potentially damaging to your medial ligaments and meniscus of the knees.

When you add the little tweak that I show you to this exercise, it not only takes the stress off these tissues but also activates glute and hip external rotator muscles.

Kill 2 birds with 1 stone!

Give it a shot and use this tip whenever you perform this stretch.

You can even add some contract/relax and scouring to the stretch to make it more effective, for more on these advanced techniques, grab the Hip Flexibility Solution program at

What exercises can be done to help heal pulled/strained adductor? Does running, elliptical and/or cycling, lunges, squats,etc make it worse? It seems that the cycle aggravates it more. I have very little range of motion in one hip due to this, and not sure how to get back to my regular workouts without prolonging the injury-love your tips! Thanks


Depends – how long has it been strained for and how did you strain it?


Unsure of exactly how long ago or how I injured it- been uncomfortable for at least 2 mos, but I really don’t want to stop working out. While working out,if I feel any twinge, I will discontinue that exercise. I am late 50s, and my workouts generally include weights and cardio. (For the past 35 yrs+) Thanks so much for your response. I just started yoga to see if that may help.


The tissue needs to heal. You’re not letting it.

I see this all the time – athletes or clients who get set in a routine and then become stubborn and afraid of what might happen if the routine changes.

Give it a week of nothing but walking and good food and sleep and even avoid upper body and core and cardio and anything that might be considered training – they all take energy that could be better used by your body to heal your broken areas.

Don’t worry, a week off and you won’t become fat and out of shape.

But if you do, that signals a problem with your regimen in the first place and better to know now than not to know.
