Weighted Dead Bugs

Like the normal dead bug, but a little more challenging on the core with the added weight.

โœ… The Set-up
- Lie on your back on the ground.
- Bring legs up so that they are perpendicular with your body, knees bent at a 90 degree angle.
- Arms are reaching towards the ceiling, straight elbows, holding a weight in your hands.
- Core is engaged with lower back flat against the ground.

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ The Action
- Lower your right foot towards the ground, keeping a 90 degree angle with the knee, while keeping the weight locked out in hands pushed towards the ceiling.
- Return leg and arm to center, switch sides.
- Continue performing in a controlled, slow fashion.

โœ… The Finish
- Lying on your back with legs (knees bent) and arms straight up with weight in hands, low back flat against ground.

๐Ÿงข Coaching Tips! Think of sucking your belly button down to your spine throughout the entire movement!
