Are dead bugs a little boring?
Sure, they aren’t all that exciting, but there is a lot to like and a lot of reasons you should probably add them into your own training program and the training programs of the clients/athletes you work.
Some things to like;
✅ it’s a great drill to help understand how to rub and pelvic portion
✅ Helps promote posterior pelvic tilt
✅ Helps to promote lumbo-pelvic hip stabilizers
✅ Improves motor control
✅ A much more ‘functional’ core movement when compared to crunches, sit ups or Russian Twists
This is a variation we’ve been using with the stability ball a little more often this year. It seems to ‘lock in’ the anterior core a little more as you are forced to create a little tension into the ball with the non-moving arm & leg.
