Isometric Groin Exercises

Isometric groin contraction exercises involve a contraction of the inner thigh muscles, without movement of the hip joint. They are a great way of starting to load the groin muscles in the early stages of rehabilitation.

Teaching Points:

  • The athlete lies on their back with a ball (either a small football, medicine ball or swiss ball) between their knees.
  • They squeeze the thighs into the ball, holding the contraction for a few seconds before resting and repeating.
  • This exercise can be performed with the feet flat on the floor or with the feet raised and knees at 90 degrees.
