Hey there, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And today, we're going to demonstrate two exercises that work the concentric hip abductors. Now, the concentric hip abductors are just a very fancy name for the muscles that allow your leg to flare outward, flare outward. Now, these are very important in speed and strength conditioning exercises. So, we want to make sure that the best way for you to do them is proper and in good decent order. So, this is what we're going to do. We're going to start off with our weight, we're going to start weighted. We're going to start with the dumbbells on the shoulder. We're going to go into our basic squat, then we're going to come up and this is the trick for the abductor, we're going to kick out; boom, to the side. Down, up, kick out to the side. That's one. Down, up, kick out to the side. Beautiful. Keep breathing, "Hmmm", exhale, "Whehhh". Now, that's one variation. The second variation, we're going to lose the weights, just in case you don't have any weights you can do this anywhere. We're going to put the arms in front in a guard position. Keeping the elbows close to the rib cage, chest up, shoulders down and back and all we're doing is lifting the leg out. One, two; one, two. Now, we try to keep the legs as straight as possible; you'll feel it in the groin area and you'll feel those hip abductors definitely start to constrict and engage. My name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister and those are just two exercises that you can do for the concentric hip abductors.
