I have an externally rotated femur on my left side after an old injury. Looking through the Neandertal No More and Get Your Butt in Gear articles, they propose mini-band side steps.
Looking at the muscles this would train (tensor facscia lata and gluteus medius), they seem to be identical to those exercised by the infamous abductor machine. Simple question: If you don’t have the bands, would the shiny empty machine next to the squat rack be a suitable replacement, or am I missing some dynamic stabilising stuff?
Edit: wrong muscle
