Cable/Band Hip Abduction

Hip Conditioning Capacity - 3

Aim:

Develop hip adductor strength

Technique:



  • Attach an ankle strap to the low pulley of a cable station, and then place the strap around your right ankle.

  • Stand with your right side facing the weight stack.

  • Place your hand on a sturdy object for support.

  • Take a big step away from the weight stack so that even when you raise your right leg out to the side toward the weight stack, the cable remains taut.

  • Without bending your knee, pull your right leg sideways so that it crosses in front of your left leg.

  • Pause, then slowly return to the starting position. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with your right leg, then do the same number with your left leg.
