I thought this would be the best place to ask knowing how flexible and sporty the lot of you are. Okay when I try to do side kicks I get a stabbing pain in my outer thigh. I have no problem doing a forward kick. The pain is unbearable so I was hoping one or more of you could suggest stretching exercises that could ease the outer thigh. I do splits and sideway splits if that makes sense (not all the way down) regularly. This problem is stopping me in my tracks and I really want to get rid of it.
