This short workout concentrates on the wonderful Side Clam, or Clamshell exercise and not only shows the basic version, but a number of variations to “up” the challenge and keep things interesting
Named for the way your legs and hips resemble a clamshell when performing the movement, this exercise not only strengthens your buttocks, hips and thighs it also stabilises your pelvic muscles, tones your gluteal muscles, particularly the gluteus medius, and is good for rehabilitating lower back and knee problems. A study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy found that the clam is one of the best exercises for helping with injury treatment and prevention and can help to reduce pain.
