Releasing Tight Groin - @samvisnic -
Tension in the groin (hip adductors) is common, especially on the RIGHT side (more on why this is the case later. Yea I’m a tease).
The foam roller is a good choice for releasing this area. The broad surface helps pin down the adductors, which is difficult to do with a ball.
🆒 Here’s a fun little fact. In the system called Applied Kinesiology, rubbing reflex points on the adductors fires up inhibited abdominal muscles, so thats a cool one to experiment with. Test the abs, roll them out, then immediately retest the abs again. -
Does it work or is that BS? Post results in the comments below!
👉 Here’s how to do it:
✅ Grab your high tech foam applicator and turn it at an angle to your inner lower thigh, just above knee level.
✅ Rest your bodyweight on your opposite side arm and leg, this will allow your adductors to relax and sink into the roller. -
✅ This area is usually VERY sensitive, so holding on most points is difficult to do until you get a few sessions in on this area. -
✅ Work on 2-3 inch movements for about 30 seconds, then reposition the roller up the leg a bit more and repeat. Also be sure to rotate your thigh inward and outwards so you don’t miss treating any important tissues. -
✅ Once you get to the top of the leg, switch and hit the other side. Note which side is more sensitive and areas that need to treated again. -
✅ Re-test any previously restricted movements or tension patterns. -
💥 Boom! You’re done!
Couldn't take vids because a massive horde of public skaters arrived in the last 20 minutes (I mean I know it's public skate but I can dream!). BUT THERE WAS THIS OLD MAN WHO WAS SO GOOD. HE WAS THERE FOR A GOOD TIME NOT A LONG TIME AND HE WAS THERE TO SLAY. #adultskater#adultfigureskating#icerink#iceskating#bruises
