This groin and inner thigh stretch is excellent for helping to prevent your groin or inner thigh muscles from straining while running.
- Sit down onto the floor and join the soles of your feet together.
- Place your elbows next to your inner knees.
- Taking care not to hunch your back, lean forward slowly until you feel the stretch in your groin and inner thighs.
- Repeat this stretch for another 1 to 3 times.
This stretch will help loosen the commonly overlooked groin muscles, along with the hamstrings and inner thighs. Everyone has different levels of flexibility, so it’s important to listen to your body and not overextend.
