Classic @ryankelly34 doing what he does: #workforit 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
The Side Plank Adductor Lift with Hip Flexion is a great exercise to target your adductor/inner thigh muscles. These muscles often get ignored despite being important in pelvic control and hamstring function.
Keep the core short by imagining you're taking a punch to the stomach. Avoid sagging or hanging on your shoulder by pressing your ribs away from the floor. Place the bottom knee down and support your weight with your opposite lateral hip at the bottom of the exercise.
HOW TO USE:
This is a great exercise for a warm-up or paired with any grip dominant work during your lift. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 4-10 repetitions.
