3-Month Dead-Ball Pullovers w/ Adduction:
Over 70% of my athlete population at MAP are Females between the ages 14-17. Therefore, the most common problem I come across during my initial assessment is quad dominance (weak glutes - posterior chain). Immediately in their programs I will introduce them to Hip Abduction exercises! Mini-Band Side Steps, Side Bridge Variations, X-Band Walks, etc. Anything, and everything, to correct Valgus knee bend, and get their posterior chain to fire when needed.
After a few months, the girls hips are stronger, valgus is gone, form/technique is perfect... but now sports are about to begin and we have not balanced out the hip stabilizers. Don't forget about the groins (inner thigh muscles). Hip Adduction exercises such as SB Squeezes can get boring, don't be afraid to try something new!
Supine Adduction Core Exercises teach athletes to activate their adductors, while engaging their core to the floor. No arches, no loose muscles; create tension and maintain a rigid trunk. Progress slowly, but don't be afraid to push your limits; Train To Get Better TODAY!
