With both the short adductor and “Frog” movements, we’re going after the inside of the hips and legs – with a focus on the tissues that extend from the hip to the knee.
Which leaves out those connective tissues which extend beyond the knee further down the leg – we refer to those as the “longer” adductor tissues.
That’s where this movement/stretch and PAILs – RAILs comes in!
It is worth mentioning, that these muscles are VERY active in both running AND cycling, so it’s natural to assume there may be some restriction from chronic use.
Note: for the first time through, be very conservative and use it as an assessment of where you’re at. Exploring in a safe way is always smart!
