Groin (inner thigh) stretch

Stand with your legs wide apart.

Shift your weight to one side, bending your knee somewhat. Do not let your knee bend beyond your ankle. In other words, you should be able to look down and still see your toes. You should feel the stretch in your opposite leg, which remains extended. Both of your feet stay flat on the ground, facing forward.

Hold for 10 - 20 seconds, then lean to the other side.
