Clam in Extension

The Clam in extension works the hip abductor muscles but in a slightly different way to the Clam in flexion exercise. Use a resistance band to ensure the exercise is difficult enough to work the muscles sufficiently.


Teaching Points:

  • Lie on your side with your knees bent and your hips moved further back into the extension
  • This targets the muscles on the outside of the hip in a slightly different way
  • It is important to do these exercises on both sides
  • If you begin to find this exercise easy then you can increase difficulty with a stronger band
  • 4 sets for 30 seconds
