If you love core training exercises, this is your video!
The dead bug is one of, if not my favorite, core training exercise of all time.
It’s easy to use, and can be done with little (or no) equipment.
You can progress it from simple and easy, to extremely hard and challenging.
And in this short video, I detail not only how to do the dead bug correctly, but give you a ton of progressions and variations you can use toe really supercharge this awesome exercise.
Once you check out the video, here are a few notes to get the most out of your dead bugs:
- Bang out a full exhale and work to get your back flat to the floor.
- Focus on getting the leg straight – even if that means not taking it as close to the floor.
- As you’re going through the motion, do NOT let the back arch or extend.
Next time you’re in the gym, go through this little progression and let me know what you think!
All the best,
