Inner Thigh Stretch

Lower Body Stretches Series

This fitness video shows how to do an inner thigh stretch.

The adductors are the inner thigh and groin muscles.

Keeping this area stretch can help minimize injuries from every day activities.

As with the outer thighs, the inner thighs run the length of the knee up to the hip area on the inside of the legs.

If you are planning an aerobic workout, which generally requires movement of the legs, then be sure to do a quick warm up and stretch first.

This will help prepare your muscles for a great workout.
