Hip Abduction/Adduction Machine:
This is a popular machine amongst the ladies. Because it promises to slim the inner and outer thighs, a problem area for most women! You can usually find them in the corner, for modesty’s sake, because the motion is spreading your legs (abduction), or closing your legs (adduction) against resistance. The machine likes to tell you that motion works your inner and outer thighs, but it really doesn’t- not primarily, anyway. The hip rotators, the deep muscles that protect the socket joint of your hip, are what control this motion, and while you may feel a burn and are strengthening your hip joint, those muscles do nothing for slimming down your thighs.
If you want to slim your inner and outer thighs, one leg exercises are your best friend, as the inner and outer thighs work hard to stabilize your knee joint. Try bench step ups and single leg squats to really target the thighs. Side lunges are also great for hitting that dreaded saddlebag area. Beginners can do laying leg lifts with a resistance band or a weight held on the outside of the leg for the same effect.
