The "deadbug" is a great exercise for your core, both posterior chain as well as anterior chain. The ball is going to help you keep stability and work a little harder! Check it out in the video below and read on for exercise details!
- To start the position, posteriorly tilt your hips so that your back is resting against the ground.
- Bring your legs up to 90 degrees and your arms up as well. The ball should be pinched between your knees and hands, elevated from your chest.
- Take the opposite arm and leg, and slowly extend them away from the ball at the same time, and then bring them back at the same time.
- Then try your other side.
While you're completing this exercise, you want to make sure that the ball is staying steady in the center. When your back leaves the mat or the floor, that's your cue to return to the center until you get a bit stronger. If you'd like to get a ball and start trying it, head over here to Amazon.
