Author's abstract

Strength and stability of the torso through core training provides the foundations on which distal limbs can function efficiently. The dead bug is one such exercise that promotes lumbopelvic stability and within a strength and conditioning program that can aid in the development of strength and power while also reducing the risk of injury. This column will discuss the muscles activated, proper exercise technique, regressions and progressions, and practical application of the dead bug exercise.
