Isometric Hip Abduction

Isometric exercises are muscle contractions without movement (static contractions). Isometric hip abduction means contracting the muscles which move the thigh outwards.

Teaching Points:

  • The athlete sits in a chair with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • The hands are placed either side of the outer knees, as shown.
  • The athlete then uses their hands to resist as they try to push the knees (thighs) outwards.
  • The contraction is held for 5 to 10 seconds, before they relax and then repeat the exercise.
