Frog Position For Short Adductors

  • Why: Here is an adductor mobilization that every athlete should perform prior to performing on the field or in the weight room. Groin mobility is essential for various training methods including agility, plyometrics, sprinting, and performing heavy traditional and olympic weightlifting.
  • Start position: Begin on your hands and knees in a table top position with your knees spread as far as comfortable.
  • The movement: Rock back until you feel adequate stretching of your groin. Make sure to keep your back FLAT, avoid rounding the back as you rock back. At this point you have the option to rotate to each side to further this mobilization. Stay strong in the shoulder girdle that is on the floor, push away with the stabilized shoulder as your rotate towards the ceiling with the opposite arm.
