Cable Hip Abduction
Select the weight then adjust the cable so that it is near the floor. Position your standing leg closest to the weight stack. Attach strap to ankle and bend your knees slightly to protect your knees.
Holding onto the machine for stability, pull the cable away from the machine without moving your hips, then lower the weight.

TIP: Concentrate on separating your thighs and keeping your hips still, as if your pelvis is a bowl of water and you do not want to spill any water.
Variations for Cable Hip Abduction
This seated machine allows you to rest the other muscles of your legs while you fatigue your outer thighs, and allows you to load more weight on as necessary.
