Foam Roll: Adductors

Body Part: Groin

Equipment: Foam Roller

Difficulty: Beginner


Step 1: From a modified plank, position the foam roller underneath the groin with the thigh out to your side. Using your arms and other leg for support, increase the amount of pressure on the muscle until you feel a manageable level of tenderness.

Step 2: Then, roll the length of the muscle area at about 1 inch per second looking for the most tender area.

Step 3: Once you've found the most tender area, hold the position and pressure there for the recommended time. Maintain posture throughout.

Step 4: Repeat on the other side. Avoid continuous movement, letting the head fall forward, collapsing the shoulders or spine, or holding your breath.
