The Extended Half Kneeling Groin Stretch with Tiltu Siltanen
This is the second part and last part of our mini mobility sereis with Tiltu Siltanen. To extend the exercise. she adds in an arm rotation.
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
Now place your right hand (palm up) next to your left hand and pull it to the left side until you feel a stretch (you can help by turning your torso)
After you felt the stretch, release tension by twisting your upper body out and pointing to the sky with your hand
Repeat as long as you feel comfortable with it and for both sides
We again focus on groin and hip, but change the tension in our muscles by adding this arm rotation into it. This one is also very good for warm ups and longer mobility workouts. If you consider doing this stretch in a cooldown, we recommend the the static version of it. And because we like to point it out again: "If you do long static stretching before a workout, it can weaken your performance" - Tiltu Siltanen
