ez mini band clam:
A great exercise for beginners and self-proclaimed weekend warriors alike, the ez mini band clam is often used in a physical therapy setting to help strengthen and recruit the muscles of the glute complex. The exercise can also be used within a superset as an ancillary exercise, being paired with a more compound movement like the deadlift, squat, or lunge.

An exercise designed to challenge even the fittest users, the ez mini band side plank works the shoulder and hip complexes while adding stress to the core muscles.
