The Dynamic Half Kneeling Groin Stretch with Tiltu Siltanen
Today we have a very special #mobilitymonday for you. Together with Tiltu Siltanen from SB-Pro Salibandy and Finnish National Team we will extend the half kneeling groin stretch. The first part from today is how we go from the static form to the dynamic form of this stretch.
How to do it?
Kneel on the floor with your hands placed in front of you
You can use a mat or your knee pads
Place your knees in line with your shoulders
Make sure to keep a straight back all the time
Stretch one leg out
Your foot should be in line with your knee
Whip back, until you feel a stretch
Now whip forward again
Everytime you whip back, try to go deeper into the stretch
Now go back into the previous position
Repeat as long as you feel comfortable with it
The focus here is again on the groin and upper leg. According to Tiltu, the dynamic form of the half kneeling groin stretch is especially good when you do a warm up or a longer mobility workout, whereas the static version is good for cooldowns. "If you do long static stretching before a workout, it can weaken your performance" Tiltu Siltanen says.
