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.

Teaching Points:

  • 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.
