How to Stretch Your Groin

Sometimes called the frog, this groin stretch can prevent injuries from athletic leaping and bounding. Or hip-hopping, if that's your thing.

You will need

  • Comfortable clothing
  • A place to sit

Step 1 Sit & pull feet together Sit down on the floor and pull your feet together a comfortable distance in front of your groin with the soles pressed against one another.

Step 2 Grab ankles Grab a hold of your ankles so that your forearms are touching the insides of your calves and your elbows are touching the insides of your thighs.

Step 3 Contract groin Contract your groin muscle by pushing your legs up against your elbows for 5 seconds.

Step 4 Relax & repeat Relax your leg muscles and push your knees down with your elbows for 10 seconds. Repeat this 3-5 times.

Step 5 Release stretch Release the stretch slowly and gently. You’re a real prince.
