Abduction/Adduction Machine

I do this machine EVERY month, twice a month. It’s SO GOOD for toning inner and outer thighs. Ladies, this machine should be your best friend. 

Now, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do this machine. Wrong: Easy weight, sitting back and not engaging your core. Right: 70-80% of 1RM for abduction and 50-60% of 1RM for adduction. Unless you have a hip injury or are in a rehabilitation program, on your second or third set, you should be going to FAILURE!!! Sit up tall, engage your core and be mindful of what muscle groups you are engaging. I see WAY too many people using this machine incorrectly, and not getting the full effect of the machine. Don’t be one of those people and WERK dem’ hips!!
