Why Adductor Magnus Tightness Occurs

The adductor magnus, a cornerstone muscle for leg stability during squats, suffers when we pause our strength training regimen for too long. This break can lead to decreased muscle elasticity and strength, culminating in discomfort upon our return. Explore the mechanics of muscle adaptation further through Hardbody’s Training Insights
