Exercise Instructions:

  1. Place your feet on the pad and support your knees against the pads.
  2. Drive your knees out as far as your flexibility will allow you to.
  3. You’ll feel a contraction in your abductors (outer thighs) and glutes (bum). I like to add a slight pause at the top of the rep to maximize this contraction.
  4. Return to the start position.
  5. If you lean slightly forward, you can enable your glutes to assist the abductor muscles to a greater extent.

Muscles Worked:

Abductors, glutes.
