Clam Exercise Cuing
The clam exercise is a great way to activate the gluteus medius. However, the cuing and positioning techniques must be perfect in order to avoid compensation from the piriformis and hip flexors. Cuing the clam for gluteus medius activation is important because within 24 hours of a gait change, the gluteus medius becomes inhibited. If you are conducting a corrective exercise program aimed at changing posture or muscle imbalances, then you will change gait. Now you need an exercise to activate the gluteus medius. Putting an inhibited muscle against resistance, such as band walking, will further increase its inhibition.
