Standing Leg Adduction With Bands
Area Targeted: Inner Thigh
Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:
Anchor: Secure the elastic(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Bands: Attach both ends of the elastic to one ankle strap.
Body Positioning: Wrap the ankle strap around the ankle of your active leg. Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door with your active leg closest to the door. If needed, position a chair so that you can use it for stability. Keep your back straight, head straight, chest up and stomach tight. Start with your active leg at a 45 degree angle with the floor.
Pull your active leg in (away from the anchor point) until your active foot is in front of your stationary foot.
Points To Remember
1. Keep your active leg straight throughout the range of motion.
2. Visualize pulling the resistance from your heel.
