This movement is a great bodyweight exercise that can activate the adductor muscles (inner thigh/groin) allowing reduced injury potential in activities such as soccer⚽️, skating⛸, gymnastics🤸🏻♂️, and karate🥋(to name a few). A common issue found preceding and after sustaining a groin pain/strain is adductor weakness. Add➕the Copenhagen Plank to your current training or rehab programs.
1️⃣ Modified Copenhagen Plank – knee on bench; performed concentric/eccentric (bridging) and isometrically.
2️⃣ Copenhagen Plank (The Original) – foot on bench; performed concentric/eccentric (bridging) and isometrically.
3️⃣ TRX Copenhagen Plank Bridge – More advanced task w/ greater core, shoulder, & hip engagement.
