EMS training of the abductors

Woman lying sideways on floor and lifting top leg to train abductors with EMS

Most people think of the outer thighs when they hear the term abductors, but that's not entirely true. For example, we also have adductors in the hands, such as the little finger spreader. However, this page is intended to refer to the abductor muscles of the thigh. Targeted training of these muscles is often neglected. With an EMS device, you can specifically strengthen this muscle group.

The abductors , as an antagonist to the adductors, in turn take their name from abduction , which means to lead away . Located on the outside of the thigh, they are responsible for spreading the legs away from the body.

How to place the EMS electrodes for abductor training

For the outer thigh, we recommend slightly larger electrodes for abductor training. The rectangular 10x5 cm electrodes or the 12x7 cm electrodes used here are suitable

Please note when using EMS:

The intensity should be set so that the intended muscle contracts significantly without causing you to feel pain.

Before training, you should warm up your muscles to prepare them for the upcoming exertion. Our EMS TENS combination device STIM-PRO X9 has pre-installed warm-up programs that start automatically before the actual training programs. So you can carry out your training completely relaxed.
