SEATED ADDUCTOR

What muscles does the Seated Adductor work?

The seated abductor is a leg machine that specifically targets your adductors. In other words, your inner thighs. This exercise is often performed before or after the seated abductor which targets the outer thighs.

How to use the Seated Adductor?

Start by bringing the pads together so that you can sit and place your feet on the foot rests and your knees outside the knee pads.

Now move the pads out as far as comfortable until a mild stretch is felt in your inner thighs. This is your starting point.

Keep your back on the seat, brace your core (reducing your lower back arch) and place your hands on the handles.

Bring your knees back together (pretty much in line with your hips). Stop about an inch before the weight hits the weight stack.

How to tell if you’re doing it right?

You feel it in your inner thighs. If you have to lift your bum or your back off the seat to move your legs then you need to decrease the resistance used.
