    1,010,648 SETS LOGGED
    100 mSCORE

    An isolation exercise targeting the adductors. The use of a machine restricts your range of motion, and forces you to move the weight along a set path. This helps add stability to the movement allowing you to focus your efforts on exertion rather than stability.
