THE DEAD BUG
Core strengthening and stability exercises have become key components of training programs for individuals of all fitness levels and backgrounds. The core muscles act as a bridge between upper and lower extremities and transmit force to these limbs. Furthermore, some studies have even demonstrated a relationship between core stability and reduced incidence of injury! All strength programs should start with exercises that target specific core muscles and back stabilizers that aid in posture. In addition, core stability is important because the joints and muscles of the pelvis and spinal column must provide a solid platform for the lower extremities to function properly throughout normal walking and running cycles.
A great exercise to start incorporating into your weights program is the Dead Bug: a core exercise that targets and strengthens muscles of the abdominal wall and back. Incorporating this simple, yet effective exercise will help improve core strength, coordination, and flexibility!In this video we show you how do do The Dead Bug using the FTS Quad Loop Resistance Band. The quad loops offer an effective way to burn calories, build strength and improve tone, flexibility and postures, all while protecting your joints.
Check out the video above to see how to properly perform this move using the FTS Quad Loop Resistance Band and start incorporating it into your strength routine!
