SESSION TWO

——————————————-

 

PRIMARY SESSION LIFTS :

 

1. COPENHAGEN ADDUCTION
single leg side plank hip adduction. use 2 elevated
surfaces for forearm position and leg bent to 90 degrees
at hip and knee. this will allow a full adductor stretch in
the bottom position, and then a pull upwards. this is far
superior to a plank bc it trains the muscle through and active
range to improve mobility as it develops the adductors.
3 sets : 0-1 RIR
* match sides for reps

2. BELT SQUAT/STRADDLE LIFT
option either one here. bias a more vertical torso
position with more knee flexion. stance is shoulder width.

*prog overload each set in succession
*use a couple warm up sets to work to first 8 rep set
