Are Deadbugs a Part of Your Core Program?

The Deabug is an anti-extension position that we use with both athletes and general fitness clients to help teach them how to control their core. 

Like the Front Plank progression, many people would think that this progression is too easy or that they are too advanced, but you will be shocked with the amount of people that will struggle to maintain core positioning during the Deadbug. 

The Deadbug progression looks something like this; 

  1. Hold
  2. Plate Loaded
  3. Band Resisted
  4. 1-Kettlebell Alternating
  5. Foam Roller
  6. Stability Ball

Again, don’t overlook this progression or jump right the the Foam Roller or Stability Ball because you think you or your clients can handle it. Build the foundation and earn the more advanced progressions.

Additionally, if you are looking for more progressions and regressions, check out my Coaches Guide to Progressions and Regressions.

In it you will find all our progressions…core, upper body, lower body, plyo, med ball and more!
