Cable Hip Abduction

  1. Be at the side of the weight stack and face away from the weight stack.

  2.  Hook a leather ankle cuff to a low cable pulley and then attach the cuff to your right ankle which would be furthest away from the weight stack.

  3. While keeping your knees and hips bent slightly and your abs tight, slowly kick the right leg away from your body in a semicircular arc as high as it will comfortably go as you breathe out.  

  4. Now slowly bring your right leg back towards your body, resisting the pull of the cable until you reach the starting position.

  5. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

  6. Switch legs and repeat the movement for the other side
