Stretch of the Week: Adductors

 

Adductor (and Transverse Adductors)

Adductors are situated on the inside of your thighs. There are two types, those muscles that cross the hip and the knee joint are the long adductors, and those that only cross the hip joint are the short adductors.

Adductor: Short

  • Sit on the floor, your trunk vertical and your legs fully extended in front of you. Bending your knees bring your feet together, sole to sole, and towards your groin.
  • Wrap your hands around your midfoot, pulling your feet in closer. Concentrate on gently lowering your knees towards the ground with each out-breath.
  • Keep your trunk tall throughout. Check out the relevant Strengthening Exercise on my Personal Training Website.
