Build An Iron Core: The Dead Bug

Friday February 8 2019

Today we’re looking at “The Dead Bug”, a fantastic exercise to train stability and endurance in a way that perfectly balances out “The Bird Dog” that we discussed last week. The Dead Bug primarily works the front side of the body (the anterior core musculature) and does so in a way that helps relate to how we move (primarily) throughout life – in a criss crossing fashion. Think walking, running, throwing, and stepping up etc. It helps us develop stability and endurance, to support the spine, during movement – something needed for an “iron core”. In the video below we’ll dive into how to train the Dead Bug regardless of your fitness level, why it’s so great, and some common mistakes.
