Performing the Exercise
Inner Thigh Workout
Now that you’re correctly positioned on the machine, let’s dive into the inner thigh workout:
- Select your desired weight resistance and engage the safety handles.
- Position your feet hip-width apart on the footplates, ensuring your toes point forward.
- Begin the movement by pushing your thighs outward against the resistance.
- Exhale and contract your inner thigh muscles, focusing on the outer movement.
- Slowly return to the starting position, allowing the weight stack to resist your movement.
- Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining control throughout the movement.
Outer Thigh Workout
To target your outer thighs effectively, follow these steps:
- Adjust the thigh pads so that they rest against the outer side of your thighs, just above your knees.
- Place your feet shoulder-width apart on the footplates, keeping your toes pointed forward.
- Select an appropriate weight resistance and engage the safety handles.
- Begin the exercise by pressing your thighs inward against the resistance.
- Exhale and contract your outer thigh muscles, emphasizing the inward movement.
- Gradually return to the starting position, resisting the weight stack’s pull.
- Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining control and focusing on the targeted muscles.
As with any exercise equipment, safety is paramount. Here are a few important points to keep in mind:
- Start with a manageable weight and gradually increase as your strength improves.
