It's official, folks: "Loosen Up That Groin For The Weekend" is the sleeper fitness viral video of the Fall. We've all been there: you're eating something unhealthy when a fitness video pops up on your Facebook feed. FML! But every once in a golden while, a video like this one from CaliSpine pops up and you're not sure if you're watching a fitness video or something totally inappropriate for the workplace.
Loosen up That Groin for the Weekend!
The adductors (inner thighs) greatly restrict your range of motion in a deep squat and prevent the legs from being spread wide enough to allow the hips to settle straight down and maintain a flat back. This simple exercise is meant to be done for 2 minutes on each side and is excellent as an active warmup before your squats. Make sure you maintain a flat back during this exercise. Your goal is to get your butt as close to your back heel as possible, but if you round the back, you are cheating! #Exercise #HipMobility #GroinRockPosted by CaliSpine on Friday, July 15, 2016
"Loosen up That Groin for the Weekend" shows a man bent over while the khaki wearing instructor from CaliSpine, a fitness club in California, awkwardly details the muscles being targeted in this most unfortunate stretch.
Seriously, we have no clue what's going on here.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, dude, watch where you put that hand.
