Hip Adduction with Band
Hip adduction is the movement of bringing the leg across the body. This is used in kicking. A resistance band can be used as shown.
- To work the groin muscles, a resistance band is anchored around a table leg and around the involved ankle.
- The athlete stands with this leg closest to the attachment point, and pulls the leg across the body, against the band’s resistance, as shown.
- The knee should stay straight and the hip should not be allowed to drop down.
