Birddogs are a fantastic exercise for not only improving core stability, but for rehabilitating the lower back as well. Unfortunately, a lot of people assume that just because an exercise appears simple that they can mindlessly crank out the reps.
This video demonstrates proper performance of the birddog exercise, along with outlining common errors. Specific coaching cues are included as well.
Most importantly, check out that sweet picture-in-picture with the PVC pipe – that totally made my morning when I figured that out!
I sincerely hope you enjoyed the video, and if you’ve got any follow-up questions, feel free to leave them in the “Comments” section below!
All the best
