If you’re looking for an effective way to strengthen your core, hips and improve mobility, look no further than the reverse clam exercise!
This exercise specifically targets the glutes and hip muscles, which can help alleviate lower back pain and support a happy, well functioning pelvic floor.
To perform the reverse clam exercise:
• Lie on side with knees and legs stacked. Position legs in front at about a 60° angle to body.
• Engage core and lift lower abs off floor – maintain through movement.
• Press top knee into bottom knee, squeeze top glute and lift top ankle to ceiling.
• Pause, then slowly return leg to start position.
Repeat until all repetitions have been completed then switch sides.
This is a simple and effective way to strengthen your hips and improve mobility. Remember to focus on proper form and gradually increase the difficulty as you progress. You can do so by increasing sets and repetitions, adding a band and/or ankle weights.
So, give the reverse clam exercise a try and feel the difference in your hips!
