This strength building exercise targets your hip abductors, and requires no gym equipment at all. This means you can do it either at home in your living room, or at a gym. You will tone your glutes and lose fat around your hips, whilst firming up your obliques at the same time. This exercise allows you to properly isolate the muscles on the inside of your thighs, the adductor muscles.
