Workout Wednesday: Dead Bugs


Last week, my trainer had me do Dead Bugs.  I had done Dead Bugs a long time ago when doing physical therapy.  The workout really works your core.  When executing the exercise, make sure your back is pressed into the floor.  To execute, extend one leg and then the opposite arm.  Keep the other leg bent.  Keeping your leg bent will help keep your back against the floor.  If you start feeling pressure in your back do not extend your leg entirely.  Do 3 sets of 12 with a 30 second rest in between sets.  If this is too difficult, only extend your legs and decrease the numbers in the set.

If you find this to be easy, you can make it more difficult.  


Add weights to your hands and then do a chest press while you extend your legs.  Remember to keep your back pressed into the floor.

Try this exercise and let me know how it goes!
