Here is a video of one of our abduction exercises that we do within our core/torso program. With the constant use of our adductors and other internal rotators of the hip, we feel that we need to strengthen abductors to make their that there is adequate muscle balance at the hip joint to prevent injuries. We will do 2 sets of 10 reps with a 3 second hold at the top.

The coaching cues are for the athlete to keep their legs straight with the top leg slightly behind the bottom leg with the toe pointed down. The upper body is to remain perpendicular to the floor.
