Clamshells with Progressions
Directions: Lie on your side with your hips and knees bent. While keeping your back and pelvis stable and your heels together, lift your knee upward and hold this position. Make sure that your back does not rock backward with the motion. This exercise can be progressed by adding a theraband around your lower thighs or lifting your heel at the end of the motion.
Note: exercises should only be performed if instructed by a properly trained health care practitioner.
