Copenhagen Adductor Strengthening Exercise
After a great "bang for buck" exercise to reduce the risk of adductor-related groin problems in your athletes/patients?
Look no further than the Copenhagen Adductor exercise!
Haroy et al (2019) showed that the addition of this exercise to "usual" weekly preparation during the pre-season resulted in 41% less adductor-related groin complaints throughout the season vs those who didn't do Copenhagen's.
See below to see the programming and dosage.
I cover this paper in more detail in my Learn.Physio Research Reviews that includes alternatives for when Copenhagen's are too difficult to perform. Read my Research Reviews by clicking on the link here
