How to Spot Tightness in the Adductor Magnus

Did you see my video about spotting tightness in the adductor magnus?

Internal hip rotation is extremely important during functional movements like; squatting, walking, lunging and running. When the hip does not rotate internally like it should, there can be increased strain on the sacro-illiac joint and even cause low back tightness. If left unchecked, an overactive adductor magnus can cause tightness in the hip capsule and further restrict motion at the hip causing stress to the knee (especially in closed chain positions). Not good!

I will add more on my site http://ericbeard.com on this topic ...I am in the process of switching over all of my new entries to that site once i work out a few small bugs. My library of blogs is on there now. So if you want to peruse any of the 125 plus entries for FREE just visit http://ericbeard.com and use the search function to look up a topic.

Here is the video about spotting adductor magnus tightness...
