Adductor Self-administered Static Stretch

Adductor Self-administered Static Stretch is a simple and easy-to-learn exercise technique that can help to increase flexibility and mobility in the adductor muscles. This stretch will involve the participant lying down on their side and slowly bringing the knees up to their chest. The athlete can then hold this stretch for a recommended 20-30 seconds before slowly returning to the starting position. This is an effective way to promote flexibility and strength in the adductor muscles, which are often

Hey guys, what's going on, my name is Rick
00:00:0300:00:08
Richie, I am here with B2C talking about the
00:00:0800:00:11
adductors stretch.
00:00:1100:00:17
Adductors are, obviously they adduct, they're also hip flexors, very important, very indicative
00:00:1700:00:25
muscle to stretch for lumbo pelvic hip dysfunction, so if somebody has an anterior pelvic tilt,
00:00:2500:00:30
this, also indicated stretch for someone who has adduction in an exercise, so if their
00:00:3000:00:32
knees start to knock together.
00:00:3200:00:36
I have Brent here, he's going to take you through the stretches.
00:00:3600:00:40
So, Brent, go ahead, and feet completely straight ahead, you're going to step outside of your
00:00:4000:00:45
shoulder width, and the first thing you're going to do is a posterior pelvic tilt, so
00:00:4500:00:51
posterior tilt, there you go, just that tuck underneath, remember, it does anterior tilt,
00:00:5100:00:53
so to stretch it we'll go posterior tilt.
00:00:5300:01:00
Face back toward the camera, and hips wide, and posterior pelvic tilt, fantastic, and
00:01:0000:01:05
we're going to stretch the left leg here, so I'm going to have you step forward with
00:01:0500:01:12
your right leg just a bit, so it creates extension at the hip here, and then, that posterior
00:01:1200:01:17
tilt included, shift sideways so your abducting this left leg.
00:01:1700:01:18
Do you feel the stretch Brent?
00:01:1800:01:19
Oh yeah.
00:01:1900:01:23
So the stretch going on right here, again indicated in lumbo pelvic hip dysfunction
00:01:2300:01:25
and lower extremity dysfunction.
