-Progressing the “Dead Bug”-
The oh-so-dreaded Dead Bug…how my clients love/hate it so!
It is one of my favorite basic movements for teaching proper stabilization strategies, as well as the correction of faulty breathing patterns.
The “Wall Push” is an excellent variation that is excellent for beginners. Dr. Craig Liebenson has popularized the dead bug, combining the research and training of Pavel Kolar and Dr. Stuart McGill. Craig’s article in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies on this exercise may be found at this link.
