Home Key Exercises Core COPENHAGEN PLANK - ADDUCTOR STRENGTHENING

COPENHAGEN PLANK – ADDUCTOR STRENGTHENING

This movement is a great bodyweight exercise that can activate the adductor muscles (inner thigh/groin) allowing reduced injury potential in activities such as soccer⚽️, skating⛸, gymnastics🤸🏻‍♂️, and karate🥋(to name a few). A common issue found preceding and after sustaining a groin pain/strain is adductor weakness. Add➕the Copenhagen Plank to your current training or rehab programs.
