The long and short of stretching the adductors

If you feel tight in the hips and even in your hamstrings - you sometimes need to be paying more attention to the Adductor group of muscles.

One of the big adductor muscles - Adductor Magnus (I think it sounds like a comic book superhero name) - actually can act like a hamstring, so for some people that tension in the hamstring actually needs to be stretched differently.

If you run, are a cyclist, do squats or leg presses regularly - or are just generally inactive and stiff - these are an easy and safe introduction to stretching that can make a big difference to your function and your mobility.

So here is how to do it - once again showed by Ian Fischer - the myotherapist at Body and Spine Solutions.
