With the intense heat of the summer we are seeing many post cramping injuries. After a cramp, it is very important to stretch the muscle frequently. The hamstrings and calves are the most common and we have covered stretching for those areas in previous videos. The adductors, or groin muscles, are also commonly involved in cramps but are commonly neglected in stretching routines. Stretching this area is especially important for those in sports with a great deal of lateral movement such as football and tennis.
Notice how I show a variation where you can twist the trunk as you stretch, which is especially helpful for runners.
Thanks and until next time stay active! (safely)
