Standing Hip Adduction on Cable Cross Machine

Starting Position
Select desired weight. Stand near left side of cable cross machine, and adjust that pulley to the lowest position. Place ankle strap attachment securely around left ankle. Stand tall with abs engaged, feet hip-width apart, hands on hips, and weight balanced on your right foot. Lift your left foot off the ground, foot flexed.

EXHALE: Keeping both legs straight, use the inner thigh to pull the left leg towards the midline of your body.

INHALE: Slowly return left leg to the side, returning to the start position to complete one rep.

Finish set on this leg and then switch sides.

Special Instructions
Keep your lower back flat--make sure it does not arch. Keep your head and neck relaxed into the support. Focus on using the abs, not just the upper body, to lift.
