Move Monday: Clamshells

This week we're hitting the glutes again - because who doesn't want a tight butt? Today's move uses an exercise band that you can purchase for about $1-$2 at most major fitness stores. As an added bonus, this move helps you ward off knee and back pain AND assists you in performing better at other exercises in the gym like squats, lunges and deadlifts. Not bad for just the floor and a band!

Things To Keep In Mind:

  • Keep your spine long and straight
  • Push your hand into the floor to keep from rocking
  • Use JUST your glutes to move your kneed of the floor
  • Squeeze your abs to stabilize your upper body
