Inner Thigh Stretch – Videos And Instructions

If you workout your inner thighs (adductor muscles), don't forget to do a good inner thigh stretch afterwards.




It will help you reduce soreness and stiffness and increase your flexibility. This in turn can minimize the risk of injury. So, don't miss out on adductor stretches.

Here you'll find two ways of stretching your inner thigh muscles. Just choose one to do in your cool down session.
