A quick, all-levels, and strength training routine that targets the glutes, hamstrings, and abductors (outer thighs)—these exercises can be done employing strictly body weight or with the added challenge of a resistance band.
Tips if you are new to using a resistance band:
- You can make the exercise more challenging by choking up on the band—resulting in more tension—or you can make the exercise easier by allowing a bit more slack in the band.
- Keep a good grip on the band so it doesn’t go flying.
- When tying the band for the clamshell exercise you want it to be snug and to sit on the thighs about two inches above the top of the knee.
