Dead Bugs

10 Reps Each Side

  1. Begin by lying flat on your back with your arms held out in front of you pointing at the ceiling.

  4. Inhale and maintain the abdominal hollowing while slowly lowering the right heel and left hand towards the floor. The hand and heel should lightly touch the floor (but not rest), exhale continue the abdominal hollowing and slowly bring the leg and arm back to the initial starting position. Alternate to use the right arm and left leg; continue to complete.
  5. Exercise Variation: To have more control (making it easier) when learning this exercise, start with the hands resting on the floor above the head and the feet resting gently on the floor in front of the buttocks; slowly lift the right arm and left leg off of the floor together while maintaining the abdominal hollowing, lower and alternate sides.  
  6. Continue to breathe while holding the abdominal hollowing and bracing.
