IT Band: Clam
The clam targets the glute meds and helps build hip control. See the clam in action here.
- Start by lying on your left side. Bring your knees and hips to a 45-degree angle bend. Position your top pelvis away from your head to bring your waist off the floor. Maintain this neutral position throughout the entire exercise.
- Lift your top knee up, keeping your heels together. Lower back to starting position, ensuring that you're not moving your pelvis or torso.
- Repeat for 30 seconds to one minute, then switch sides.
