Abducción de cadera con cable-polea acostado en el suelo


Put a ankle strap to a low cable pulley and hook it to the right ankle. Select the appropriate resistance in the weight stack. Lie on a mat facing up with the pulley at your left side, the cable should go over the left shin. Your right leg should start close to your left leg. The cable should have tension before start the exercise. Contract your pelvic floor and core.


Contracting your gluteus, fully separate your right leg from the other while you exhale. Make sure you only move your right leg. Return to the starting postion with a smooth movement, preventing moving weights from touching the rest of the stack. Repeat the movement for the specified amount of repetitions and then switch sides and repeat with the other leg.

TIPS: Make sure you don't move any other part of your body, paying special attention to your abdominal muscles. Focus on slow and controlled movement.
