People have been asking me about the Copenhagen adductor exercise. As usual, good form and ramping up slowly = most important. Depending on your needs, ability, it's a fine exercise to add to a well-rounded program.

*You can hold position or do reps of raising the bottom leg to stabilized top leg.


**If you have shoulder problems, seek appropriate therapy/rehab

before doing any planks.
