THE ESSENTIAL STRETCH ROUTINE

BEEN SLACK WITH YOUR STRETCHING? FITNESS EDITOR ANNE-MARIE LATEGAN SHOWS YOU HOW IT’S DONE\

INNER THIGHS

Muscles used

Inner thighs (adductors)

Why do it?

Your inner thighs help with lateral stability while you run. When they get tight, that can lead to knee, hip or back pain.

Technique

• Stand with your feet twice your hip-width apart

• Bend one knee until you start to feel the stretch on the inner thigh of your straight leg

• Hold the position for 30 seconds before changing over to the other side

Watch points

Don’t bounce your stretches. Hold the position and stretch more as the tension eases off.
