Post How do you stretch before kicking?
I would like to know how to properly stretch before starting a kicking session. If I just kick without doing anything in advance there's this popping sound from the groin area the first one or two kicks.
There must be a way to stretch so that you could avoid this, because I don't want to pull any groin muscles.

Please help!

Do some dynamic stretching. Not only will it get you warmed up and stretched out, it does it without straining your ligaments or making you feel too weak or "loose" like static stretching. Try throwing your (straight) legs up in front of you like an axe kick, sideways like a sidekick, and backward like a back kick. It's important that the knee stays straight the whole time so you get a good stretch on all the muscle heads and don't try to force it higher than it should go.

A lot of these ones I do myself.

I pulled my groin at 18... it sucked... stretching I can't stress enough in kicking.

As Darren said "stretching I can't stress enough in kicking,". Streching not only makes it so you can kick higher and easyer but also, if you strech after doing a work out, will help your muscles build beter.

I will definately do more streching and try out the stuff in the links and see what works for me. Because I don't want to hurt myself doing kicks and such. It's better to hurt yourself doing some cool stunt, as long as you get it on camera!
