Another great stretch for your inner thighs is the butterfly stretch. So, you're going to get down on the floor, bring both legs together, bring your feet together, just like this. You're going to sit down into your hips. Keep your back straight, your shoulders back, core tight, and you're going to drive your knees down into the floor. Alright.

So, you're going to feel the stretch all through the hamstrings and even into the groin area. This is a great stretch. Make sure that you're sitting up tall. You don't want to slouch. You don't want to sit into it. You want to make sure that you're nice and tall and really open them up. Sometimes I even use my arms to kind of push my knees down even more to get an even deeper stretch. You're going to hold it for about 20 to 25 seconds, and then release and then do it again.

This is a great stretch to do before doing any kind of leg workout, cardio. Do it before and after your workout. You want to make sure that this area is nice and stretched, especially the groin area. Very common area to pull a muscle in if you're doing leg workouts or any kind of flexibility workout where you're having a full range of motion with your legs. So, that is another great way to stretch the inner thighs, is the butterfly stretch.
