Iliac Crest Pain Exercises

THE MOVEMENT

Comment: Perform this exercise to strengthen the adductors. This muscle group is often injured during intense exertion. Therefore, increase the weights gradually and perform adductor muscle stretches at the end of the workout.

Sit at the machine with the legs spread apart:

• Contract the thighs to bring the legs together.

• Return to the initial position with a controlled movement.

This exercise works the adductor muscle group (pectlneus; adductors minimus, magnus, brevis and longus; and gracilis) and allows you to use heavier weights than you can with the cable adductions but with a decreased range of motion. Best results are achieved In long sets until you feel a burn.
