The exercise of the month for February is Dead Bugs. For those of you that have been following my recent articles, hopefully you can see by now how important posture is. Dead Bugs are a great exercise to help strength your core and help you in creating a more neutral posture. It is also a great exercise for working on your motor control and coordination.
How do you perform a proper dead bug? First, start off lying on your back with your legs and arms up in the air as the picture shows.
Second, pull your rib cage down and allow your lower back to be in contact with the floor. Then, you’re going to move your opposite arm and leg away from your body as the picture shows.
Try and do two to three sets of fifteen to twenty reps.
