Strained Groin? | MED for HFS [ASK ERIC]

In today’s QnA video, I answer the following questions:

Any suggestions for strained inner thigh muscle?

Strained it doing side stretch after doing kick boxing.

Hi Eric, I’ve been playing around with HFS for the last couple of months.

I started doing a full month of HFS by the book and got great results.

However, as a former athlete now turned desk jockey, I have plenty of areas that need additional corrective work (ankles, knees, rotator cuff & upper thoracic, etc) and between all of the corrective routines I am doing, its taking up a lot of my time.

Is there a “minimum effective dose” for HFS?

I was leaning towards trying to get 3 of the main routines in a week (2 kneeling/ 1 standing or vice versa) as well as 2x per week of core & ASMR.

Thanks again, and I’m looking forward to Shoulder Flexibility Solution.

Thanks Eric – colleague gave me the link to your site…Having a strained inner thigh / adductor obviously prevents me from using my tae Kwon Do kicks; indeed sometimes I can’t even lift the leg properly to do an effective front kick. First time on site and there’s some help on my specific injury. Many Thanks it would appear that I am being far to aggressive with the stretch! Thank You Brian Duckworth (Australia)
