Preventing a groin strain (groin pull) is a given fact. This exercise lowers the risk of groin injuries by warming up and strengthening your groin muscles.
Ice hockey and football players are particularly vulnerable
Groin injuries make up almost half of all strain injuries in ice hockey. Several reports have also shown that a groin pull is a quite common injury for male football players at the elite level.
Long lasting pain
Strains and other painful conditions in the groin, pelvis, and hip are quite common in certain sports. They can be difficult to treat. Many of these injuries result in a long break from training and, in addition, are often recurring.
