Core Exercises – Dead Bug

Welcome to my first attempt at uploading video to my blog!

This exercise, adapted from physical therapy, is great for people who are not sure how to activate their transverse abdominus muscle. 

Through a deep exhale, and brief posterior pelvic tilt, (also activating internal obliques), most will finally feel the TA and surrounding muscles contract.

While this is not optimal for spinal/core stability itself, it can be used as an inital tool to create the sensation of activation that many people are unable to feel.

I prefer the use of planks, side bridges, “”Palloff” presses and stability ball rollouts for true spinal stabilization. Watch for these exercises soon!
