Eccentric Adduction with Partner
Eccentric exercises focus on strengthening the muscle whilst it lengthens (rather than shortens). This happens to control a movement. So in this case a therapist applies a force and the patient slows it down. This is an eccentric groin exercise.
- The athlete is postioned on their back and the therapist at their foot end.
- The therapist forcefully moves the leg out to the side and the patient controls and slows down the movement.
