Avoid is probably too strong a word - it's not as though they are actually dangerous.

It's just that those are relatively small muscles, and training small muscles in isolation is not a particularly effective use of your training time. You are better off working larger muscles with compound exercises - you will get more bang for your strength training buck.

If you do want to train the abductors/adductors, try some compound moves with some lateral instability - eg. single leg squats, T stand/airplane pose, squats on balance board/BOSU, etc.

When you say to avoid the adduction/abduction do you mean the machines? What about the standing abduction? It targets the outer thigh, hips, and quads? Wouldn't that be better than using the machine? Just curious.

Squats and deadlifts are great compound exercises, and definitely worth the time spent.

Abductions only work one small muscle. Ditch these in favor of something like lat pull-downs, or dumbbell rows (compound exercises that are hard to replicate with bodyweight alone).

choose 3 exercises: 1 lower body squat/deadlift/lunge, 1 upper body pull, 1 upper body push

superset these.

pick another 3 exercises.

do not ever do isolation exercises such as adductor/abductor.
