HIP/LEGSGluteus Maximus
 
Machine Standing Hip Abduction
 

Position
Stand in a ready position, facing and centered with the machine, and having your hip joint aligned with the level of the camís axis. Adjust the pad to just above your knee. Lightly hold the bars with your arms straight and your elbows slightly flexed. Start with your movement leg aligned straight and slightly in front of your stationary leg, foot pointed slightly in, and weight just off of the stack.

Technique
Contract the abductors, and begin pulling your leg out slowly. Continue to pull your leg out to about a 45-degree angle or as close to it as possible while maintaining proper pelvic and spinal positioning. Hold, continue to contract the hip abductors while stabilizing with your trunk and your stationary leg. Slowly lower your leg back to its original starting position. Repeat.
