This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are using this hip adduction or inner thigh machine. Using this machine is one of the most effective ways to strengthen your inner thigh muscles, but there are some things you need to keep in mind in order to stay safe while doing so.
The hip adduction machine gets a lot of negative commentary, in part because of how the exercise looks and in part because most people who are speaking poorly about it have very little knowledge on what they are talking about. Despite all of the stigmas around this machine, there are tremendous strength and muscle function benefits that can be gleaned from using it.
However, even though there are a lot of positives that can come from using the inner thigh machine, there are some easy mistakes that people often make when they incorporate it into their workout routines.
One issue that many people run into when using the inner thigh machine is they don’t work the muscles they are intending to. While this machine is often thought to focus on the inner thigh muscles, people will start to compensate around those muscles based on how they are pushing into the machine.
So, exactly should you be pushing into this machine to work your inner thigh muscles? That’s exactly what we are discussing in this week’s video.
Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss another consideration when using the hip adduction machine.
