How to perform?

The hip adductors are a group of muscles located on the inner thighs, responsible for bringing the legs towards the midline of the body. They work in opposition to the hip abductors, which are located on the outer thighs and responsible for moving the legs away from the midline. Their unique function enables the hip adductors to play a crucial role in movements such as walking, running, and jumping. Strengthening the hip adductors through specific exercises can improve overall leg stability, balance, and agility, while also helping to prevent injury in the lower body. Some common exercises that target the hip adductors include seated leg adduction, cable hip adduction, and lateral lunges.
