Tight inner thighs can affect your hips too. This simple straddle is a great way to lengthen your adductors (aka your inner thigh muscles).
- In a seated position, open your legs as wide as needed to feel a stretch in your inner thighs. If you're really tight, try sitting on a pillow to decrease the stretch, or try doing this stretch one leg at a time.
- To increase the stretch, walk your hands forward while keeping your back straight, hinging forward from your hips. Hold this position for 20 to 30 seconds.
- Then round your back, bringing your head toward the floor; hold this position for 20 to 30 seconds.
