Adductor Magnus (Posterior) SA Static Release

Adductor Magnus (Posterior) Static Release is a form of self-myofascial release that is used to target the posterior portion of the adductor magnus muscle. This technique helps to reduce tension within the muscle, as well as reduce pain and promote healing. It's also used to improve flexibility and range of motion in the hips. This technique involves lying on the floor on your side and placing a foam roller perpendicular to the direction of your body. Slowly roll

This is Brent, President of B2C Fitness, and
00:00:0200:00:07
we're talking about myofascial release
00:00:0700:00:12
of the posterior head of the adductor magnus. I'm going to have my friend, Salvi, come
00:00:1200:00:17
up, help me show off the anatomy, as well as demonstrate this release technique.
00:00:1700:00:22
Now, the posterior head of the adductor magnus inserts into the adductor tubercle,
00:00:2200:00:27
which is just above the inside of the knee, and then connects into the ischium,
00:00:2700:00:31
or ischial tuberosity, all the way through the groin region. Now, the
00:00:3100:00:35
posterior head of the adductor magnus, through fascial slips, connects to
00:00:3500:00:40
something called your sacral tuberous ligament, which means if there is any dysfunction
00:00:4000:00:45
in the sacrum, the SI joint, people who get low back pain in this region, as well
00:00:4500:00:50
as the lumbosacral region, so some low back pain, there is a chance that this muscle
00:00:5000:00:54
here is going to start to develop some trigger points, and start to become a bit
00:00:5400:00:59
overactive. So what we're going to need to do, is start releasing some of those
00:00:5900:01:04
trigger points, and calm this muscle down. The easiest way to do that, is to use a soft
00:01:0400:01:09
ball, and find something high enough to sit on so that your legs dangle. So, Salvi
00:01:0900:01:15
is just going to sit on this flat box we've got here, she's going to use this
00:01:1500:01:21
ball to search the inner part of the back of her thigh.
00:01:2100:01:26
So you can go ahead and roll from groin region, all the way down to the inside of
00:01:2600:01:31
your knee. I want you to look for the most tender point.
00:01:3100:01:33
-Found it. Good.
00:01:3400:01:38
I want you to totally relax, sit,
00:01:3800:01:43
and then she can use this arm to kind of stabilize her leg, because if the ball is
00:01:4300:01:47
on the inside of her leg, your leg kind of has a tendency to want to roll off this
00:01:4700:01:51
way, so she's nice and stable, totally relaxed, she's going to hold that
00:01:5100:01:58
position for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, without fidgeting, or until she feels a
00:01:5800:02:04
release. So that is static myofascial release for the posterior
