Standing Leg Adduction With Loop Bands
Area Targeted: Inner Thigh
Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:
Anchor: Secure the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Bands: Attach the band to the door anchor.
Body Positioning: Place the band around the ankle of your active leg. Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door with your active leg closest to the door. 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 non active foot. Slowly return to the starting position. Repeat.
Points To Remember
1. Keep your active leg straight throughout the range of motion.
2. Visualize pulling the resistance from your heel.
3. If needed, position a chair so that you can use it for stability.
