This hip strengthening exercise is a way to build strength in the glutes and hips. Start by lying on your left side, with your resistance band tube around both legs and resting on the thighs above the knee. Support your head in your left hand and place your right hand on the floor in front of you for better balance. Rest your legs together on the ground with a bend in the knees.

To do this hip strengthening exercise, start by making a clamshell shape with your legs: keeping your heels together, lift your right knee up toward the ceiling. You’ll feel the resistance from the band as it’s pulled taut. With control, slowly lower your right knee back down to your left. Repeat this exercise 15 times. To do the exercise on the other side, it’s easiest to roll onto your back then onto your right side.
