Cable Hip Abduction


Step 1: Attach ankle strap to a low pulley, then attach it to your other ankle bone (leg furthest away from cable)

Step 2: Stand so that you are facing perpendicular to the resistance and place the hand closet to the cable machine on the machine hand rest

Step 3: Stand far enough from the machine to ensure tension on the cable and keep your posture aligned

Step 4: Slowly and with control abduct the hip, moving the outer leg laterally away from your body

Step 5: Push your leg away from the midline of your body as far as possible, until your hip position can no longer be maintained or is beginning to be compromised

Step 6: Pause, slowly lower the leg, then repeat.

Step 7: Complete 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps on each leg
