Gym Exercises

The Adductor Machine, isolates and strengthens the muscles of the inner thigh. Learn how to use this machine with the team at Fitness Institute.

Machine:   Life Fitness Hip Adduction

Similar to the hip abduction machine, sit down in the machine, however, place the knees outside the pads. In this exercise, the starting position is with the legs apart.

It is recommended you hold onto the handles (Figure 1), sit upright and brace through the core.

Squeeze and drive the knees in until they touch (Figure 2), then, with control, allow knees to slowly return to the starting position.

Repeat for as many desired reps.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
