Hovering Hip Abduction!!
Sup guys!? 🙂
Thought I’d share one of my favorite glute exercises in honor of hump day!! Lol
Introducing… The hovering hip abduction!!
Most gyms have this machine and if you’re lucky it faces a wall lol here we go…
Step 1 Get in there!
Step 2 Choose a heavy weight! I find you can go much heavier than you would in the traditional seated method. Start out light and work your way up if you aren’t sure where to start.
Step 3 Stand up, drop it low and get to work!! Keep your back straight (not hunched), core tight and focus on using only your glutes and legs to move the weight. I typically do 3 sets of 12 at 230 or 250 lbs. I brace myself by holding onto the sides of the machine.
Step 4 Feel the burn!! (_|_) lolol
The hip abduction focuses on the muscles of the outer thigh and standing in a squatting position engages more of the gluteus medius and hip abductors (muscles on the side of your booty that move your legs outward) 🙂 Enjoy!!
