Groin Strengthening

Today’s post showcases a variety of exercises to help strengthen your groin (adductor) muscles! The adductors are an important muscle group in your lower body, used for either kicking across your body, aiding in knee stability, controlling certain movements when running, as well as contributing internal force for squats, lunges, sumo deadlifts etc! Commonly we see people at the gym trying to target these muscles on the adductor machine, sitting down trying to improve their ability to squeeze a watermelon between their thighs!


Instead, check out this video and try these exercises out for a bit of variety which may also be more functionally relevant your gym lifts/sport, or at least has you working other muscle groups in synergy.


1) Supine theraband (or powerband) adductions +/- glute bridge 2) Squat with powerband groin emphasis 3) Lunge with powerband groin emphasis 4) Lateral powerband step outs with groin emphasis 5) Copenhagens: holds → lifts (regress to bottom knee on the ground if necessary) These exercises can also be used for rehab purposes if guided through the appropriate exercise/level by an exercise professional.
