Dead bug

By September 27, 2018Uncategorized
This is one of a number of exercises to strengthen the core safely and with control.

To do the Dead Bug:

  • Lie on your back with your back flat against the surface you are lying on
  • Lift both hips / knees to 90 degrees and point both arms to the ceiling
  • Slowly and in a controlled manor lower one leg towards the floor whilst straightening it and let the opposite arm fall behind your head
  • Repeat on the other side.

This will hit your core and particularly strengthen your hip flexors.

If you ever experience pain doing this exercise, stop, and call your osteopath.
