Main working muscles: The hip abductors, gluteus medius and minimus.

Hip abductor machineSet the weight: Start with a light weight which you can handle comfortably.

Starting position: Sit comfortably on the seat with your back straight, head supported and hands resting on the handles provided. Place your legs together between the resistance pads, with your feet supported on the foot rests.

Action: Press your legs outwards as far as you can, then reverse the movement with control to bring your knees and thighs together again.

Breathe normally.

Caution: Avoid pain. If you cannot spread your legs outwards right to the end of your natural range, the weight is too heavy.
