I think you're almost right about that Tamara. The problem isn't necessarily the exercise but what it is we expect the exercise to do. That said, spending all day on the in/adductor machine isn't going to do even a tiny portion of the good that doing squats, lunges and/or step-ups would do. To me, it seems like a waste of time to work one angle of a giant muscle when I could just do some squats or lunges and work the entire thing.
