This is Your Quick Training Tip, a chance to learn how to work smarter in just a few moments so you can get right to your workout.

There are more than 650 muscles in the human body, but only a handful of them are targeted in most guys’ workouts. Pecs, biceps, triceps, delts, lats, traps, abs, quads, gluts, hams, calves—these muscles hog the spotlight while hundreds of others are given short shrift. That’s a problem if your goal is to build functional strength and optimize athletic performance—especially when it comes to the hip adductors.

Located on your inner thighs, the hip adductors are a group of five muscles—adductor brevis, adductor longus, adductor magnus, pectineus, and gracilis. Their primary function is to “adduct” your thighs at your hip joints (or, more simply, to bring your legs inward), but that’s not all they do—they also help stabilize your pelvis and extend and rotate (both internally and externally) your hips.
