standing machine hip abduction gluteus medius

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Standing on the machine on one leg. The outer side of the other leg is gluted to the pad below the knee joint (close to your ankle) :

  • Raise the leg as high as possible and slowly return to the starting position by controlling the movement.

Attention

standing machine hip abduction gluteus minimus

Abduction is limited because the femur’s neck is quickly bumping on the edge of the cotyloid cavity.

This exercise works gluteus medius and gluteus maximus. For best results, it’s advisable to work with high reps.
