13 May Foundation: Maintain Alignment – Dead Bug
Foundations: Maintain Alignment
Quick Intro: Dead Bug aka Greyhound
What’s it good for?
🌟 Dead Bug is a safe exercise that teaches us stability of both the shoulders and pelvis.
🌟 This exercise helps to improve coordination of limbs.
A quick “how to”…
🌟 Lie on your back, facing the ceiling with your hips & knees bent at 90 degrees and with both are pointing towards the ceiling.
🌟 Engage your abdominals and keeping your knee bent at 90 degrees, reach one foot towards the floor whilst reaching the opposite arm overhead.
🌟 As your arm and leg move away from each other, engage your abdominal muscles to helps stabilise your pelvis and trunk against the movement that your limbs create.
Hints & Tips:
🌟 Keep your knees at 90 degrees throughout.
🌟 Reach your legs long and point your feet and try to touch only your toes to the floor.
🌟 Reach your arms long up overhead.
