Dead Bug

Once again, lie on your back, and remember, make sure you lay on a sturdy flat surface, like the floor. You can lie on a yoga mat, but do not do this exercise in your bed; the mattress is not firm enough to support your back as you do these exercises. This is exercise you will use your opposite arm and opposite leg.

Step One: Lying flat with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground, lift your right arm straight up and lift your left leg, but do not lift your leg higher than the level of your bent knee. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Relax back to the neutral position

Step Two: Switch arms and legs and once again hold that position for 10 seconds. Do three reps (repetitions).
