Strengthen your Back and Abs being a Deadbug
Deadbugs utilise muscles that provide stability all the way from your shoulders to your toes. It works by increasing stability in the trunk so that you can move your limbs throughout range and pain free.
It is great for adding strength to the back and abdominals so they can support the shoulder and hips in movement.
If you are having trouble with squats, lunges or overhead work try adding in dead bugs as a supplemental exercise in your training. It will help provide the stability you need in order to perform your movements with ease and stability.
How to Perform Deadbugs:
When performing the exercise keep your back flat against the floor, put your tongue on the roof of your mouth (to stimulate your diaphragm) and then slowly move your opposite arm and leg away from each other. Stop if your back arches off the ground or if you can no longer move your arm or leg without pain.
Slowly build up as many repetitions as possible without breaking form.
