Seated Hip Adduction Machine

Starting Position
Follow machine instructions for set up and select desired weight. Sit so that feet are on foot rests, knees are bent, pads are on the inside of the knees, legs are as apart, and back is straight against pad behind you.

Action
EXHALE: Hinging from the hip, use the inner thighs to push (close) your legs together against the pads.

INHALE: Slowly bring the legs back out, without allowing the weight stack to slam, to complete one rep.


Special Instructions
This can be a dangerous and result in muscular imbalance by overdeveloping the muscles in the inner thigh. SparkPeople recommends that you practice extreme caution when doing this move, using a light weight, or avoid it entirely.

Muscles Worked: Inner thighs
