How to Dead Bug
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Hip Flexion
Equipment: Yoga Mat
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Lie on your back with your hips and knees flexed to 90 degrees. Extend your arms out in front of you so that your fingers are pointing towards the sky. This is the starting position.
Tighten your abs to keep your core solid as you extend your right arm overhead and your left leg long. Pause briefly with your right arm and left leg approximately 2 - 3 inches from the floor.
Return to the starting position with control and switch sides. Continue alternating for the specified amount of repetitions.
Dead Bugs challenge core and hip stability. Focus on keeping your core braced as you move your arms and legs with control.
