The Clam exercise in a great exercise to help with strengthening the hip and lower back. Hip and Back pain can be helped with the Clam exercise.
The exercise above is a nice variation to focus on the buttock more. By placing the foot in front of the other foot will internally rotate the hip and turning off the front muscle making the back muscle (Glute Medius) the primary muscle doing the movement.
