Overview

The clam is an exercise that targets the hip abductors, which are the muscles on the outside of your hips. It is a simple exercise that can be done with or without weights. To do the clam without weights, lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Spread your legs out as wide as you can, keeping your knees bent. Slowly lower your legs until they are parallel to the floor, then raise them back up. Repeat this exercise for 10-12 repetitions. To do the clam with weights, hold a weight in each hand and place them on your thighs. Follow the same steps as above, but keep your arms extended out to the sides. This exercise will help to strengthen your hip abductors and improve your flexibility.
