Hip Stabilization: Clamshells

,

Works:  Hips, piriformis

Sequence:

  1. Start with bodyweight and lie down on a mat, heels in line with hips, body in a straight line
  2. Lift one knee toward the ceiling until you feel tension, hold for 5 seconds then lower and repeat 20 times
  3. Switch sides and repeat sequence. Do two sets each side

Make it harder: Add a short resistance band starting at lightweight and progressing to heavyweight as long as form is not compromised.
