Adductor muscles, or the muscles situated on our inner thighs, are used extensively in sprinting, playing soccer, horse riding and sprinting. A weak adductor muscle may be injured in rapid movements of the leg against resistance like kicking a ball.

The adductor muscles help with stabilization and make it easier to perform lunges, squats, leg presses and other leg exercises that require good balance. However, the inner thighs are tough to be worked out effectively. So, if you are serious in building that part, the adductor machine will be helpful.

Steps:

  1. Position yourself in the Thigh Adductor Machine, with the pads firmly pressed against the inside of your thighs. It is important to keep your back and butt well against the backrest. Your head and spine aligned, your thighs on the pads, and your feet on the footrests.
  2. Start with low weight.
  3. Slowly squeeze your thighs together and then move back to the original position.

Tips:

  • Leaning forward at any point during the exercise tends to involve lower-back muscles, rather than the adductor. So, lean back and make sure your back is supported.

  • Thigh adductor machine will not help in spot reduction which is reducing fat at specific spot, in this case, it will be the fat at inner thigh.

    I’m not sure if i would do this one, because it’s the “girly” machine. Since I’m a woman, I wanna do the big and tough machines :P
