Adductor muscles, though not always known by nme, are the muscles that run along your inner thigh. These are the muscles that cause the feeling of tight hips. And tight hips are an athlete’s worst enemy! It limits lower body movement, making certain exercises (squats, lunges) more difficult. The position to start this isn’t comfortable, and a bit awkward. But, don’t worry: You’ll become used to it before you know it!
- Start with your roller positioned beneath your upper thigh, on the inside. The best way to do this si to start on your stomach, your knee bent up and positioned out towards the side. The roller will be close to your groin.
- Now, roll towards the knee. Don’t tense your inner thigh!
TIP: Your upper body shouldn’t turn during this exercise. Keep your torso parallel to the floor or mat.
