Jody performs a “dead bug” exercise with an activated core. Jody is resisting shoulder flexion while alternately extending one leg at a time. Her focus is on keeping the same, subtle curve in her low back as she performs the movement. The exercise is made more difficult by extending the leg further and lower, and by pulling back with more resistance on the arms.
(This is an advanced core exercise, master the deadbug with no resistance before moving to this progression)
