Coordination and Core Stability

Coordination and Core Stability

Here’s a great routine you can do while lying on your back!  It’s a neat way to exercise the anterior (front) and posterior (back) parts of your body without needing to move much.  You’ll find these to be extremely effective movements for helping you stand taller and feel more comfortable when you’re on your feet.  Also great as a warm up or therapy for back pain.

3 rounds of:
•30-sec dead bugs
•30-sec bridges


Key Points

Dead bugs:  Starting with knees and arms up… focus on flattening your low back to set the core in a slightly hollow position.  While moving one leg forward and the opposite arm back… maintain a flat low back that’s connected to the floor. This will train your body to stay stable in your low back and core while you move.  Super important! This is more challenging than a “legs only” Deadbug!


Bridges:  Slowly roll your spine up segment by segment.  Imagine a bowl of soup just below your below button. Initiate the bridge by tilting the imaginary bowl of soup towards you.  This sets your pelvis in an optimal position. Come up slowly and get your torso in line with your legs (knee to hip) at the top.  Squeeze the glutes at the top and roll back down the same way you rolled up.
