How I Progress the Deadbug

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 wouldn’t 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 👇

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