Instructions: How To

This exercise is a cable variation of Standing Hip Adduction. The use of a cable machine allows for greater resistance as well as giving you more control over the exact direction your resistance is coming from. This exercise can help improve lower body strength and hip stability.

  1. Position the cable to its lowest setting, strap the ankle attachment and position the strap so the cable attached to the outer ankle.
  2. Stand perpendicular to the cable with your feet together.
  3. Move your leg across your body in front of the outside leg holding onto something safe for balance.
  4. Control the movement back to the starting position and repeat.
