17 Jul Exercise for Confidence: Groin Rolls
It’s not the strength and conditioning industry if you’re not stealing other people’s shit.
For example, there have been a plethora of exercise I’ve stolen from others:
– hip thrusts from Bret Contreras
– any landmine variation from Ben Bruno
– dead bugs from Stuart McGill
– bottoms up kettlebell wall side plank from Meghan Callaway
I’m willing to bet the rest of you could say the same about stealing exercises.
It’s okay. You’re not the devil.
The world we live in today is so connected that I don’t even know who I’m stealing from anymore, or if I’m even stealing. But hey, we’re here to help each other out, right? Again, it’s okay. Just give people credit when its due.
Today’s exercise may actually be my own. I’m 99.9999% sure.
Here it is:
Why It’s Awesome:
– Activates the anterior core more than crunches. #TeamAntiCrunches
– Ties in the hip adductors which are a part of the core. Surprise, I know. Also, there’s something to be said about improving groin strength. I feel there isn’t enough focus on it in performance programs.
– Improves spatial awareness.
– Tones inner thighs more than the hip adductor machine.
– That was a joke.
Give it a try and let me know how you do, but also, don’t forget to give me credit for this one. I invented it.
