Alternating KB Dead Bug with Hip Flexion

One of the biggest dysfunctions we see when we bring athletes through the FMS is a poor score on the active straight leg raise, meaning someone is having trouble engaging their core while their legs are moving – something that is kind of important in sports. Here we have added a band around the bottom of the feet to add a hip flexor component to really get the core firing.

It’s also obvious that most athletes (anyone really) are living in an anterior pelvic tilt, which is why dead bug and their variations always seem to make their way into the program.
