The adductor muscles of the inner hip and thigh are responsible for pulling the leg inward towards the midline of the body. In other words, if you squeeze your legs together, you are using your adductor muscles. Flexible adductors will help improve hip mobility.

Experts typically recommend avoiding passive stretches just before physical activities, using them instead as a cool down or recovery day tool.
