How to perform a Dead bug Alternating Leg Reach with TurnFit Personal Trainers and guest Kennedy Hindley

This exercise is about control. With diaphragmatic breathing, we learn to control our movement to maintain the integrity of our hips, back and spine while working on our core strength and stability.

1. Lie face up with arms fully extended along sides. Bring legs to tabletop position, knees bent, stacked over your hips and lower legs parallel to the floor.
2. Bring your arms up over shoulders until they are at a right angle with the floor.
3. While diaphragmatic breathing, extend one leg out. Brace your core and reach for the floor straightening the leg but leg doesn’t touch the floor.
4. Return the leg to the starting position and repeat with the opposite leg.

NOTE: Move slowly and maintain control. Do not let your allow your hips to shift or your ribs to lift. Keep your back on the floor.
