This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is adductor rocking courtesy of Tim Anderson of Original Strength.
You should do this because– those inner thigh muscles are quite large and they do get neglected (out of sight, out of mind) and become very tight. Tight inner thigh muscles can affect your hip mobility and knee stability.
Makes your everyday life easier because– you’ll move better in and out of the gym and it may help prevent the dreaded groin strain.
Form tips – As you rock back, more is not better with this stretch. When you feel the tightness, do go beyond this point. I’ve learnt this the hard way. Include this exercise if you;re training legs or after long periods of sitting.
