Purpose of the exercise

Exercise Instructions

Stand with your feet two to three times shoulder width apart and your feet facing forward.
Turn your left foot sideways and bend that knee to drop into a side lunge. Keep your right leg perfectly straight.
Push your right hip down towards the ground and lean your torso to the right until you feel it through the inside thigh of your right leg.
Hold this position for at least 20 seconds, then switch leading legs and repeat.

Exercise Purpose

This Inside Thigh Stretch focuses on increasing the range of motion of your hip by stretching the groin, which allows more lateral movement of your leg. The groin is a particularly tight area for most people, but especially men. Injuries in this area tend to be very hard to treat and take a long time to heal; this exercise can help prevent painful strains. This move is helpful for those who are physically active and participate in sports but it also offers immense benefits for those looking to improve hip mobility and the ease of day to day movement.
