Nifty adductor drill.
Had a toolbag on IG say “funny ppl hate the adductor machine but do this all day.”
1. I don’t hate it.
2. Adductor machine = $1000. This drill “cost” $50 (plus I can perform hundreds of other exercises).
3. I win. pic.twitter.com/zzlkzLgBZR

My brain doesn’t work like most of my colleagues. . @meghancallaway @dr.joelseedman_ahp @benbrunotraining @matthewibrahim_ @dsomerset1 @coachleeboyce Etc… . Are all examples of coaches who always seem to come up with innovative exercises and ideas. . Me? . (Crickets chirping). . However, check out this snazzy band set up I used for my close grip bench presses yesterday? . Granted, I do have the option of looping bands around pegs at the bottom of the rack, but: . 1. I was too lazy to do that yesterday. 2. Many people don’t have that luxury, so I figured I’d showcase how to do it another way. . Simply loop the bands around a pair of safety arms OR pins. . Here I’m using a pair of 1/4” mini bands, and the setup worked splendidly.
