Technique Tuesday: Bird Dog


Equipment:

- none

Purpose:

- Improve your core strength

- Improve your hip / glute strength

- Improve your shoulder and hip stability

- Improve your ability to move your arms / legs while maintaining spinal stability

Technique Tips:

- Your back should be flat -- can use a block on your back to make sure you are not moving.

- Press the ground away with your arms in order to separate your shoulder blades apart

- Stiffen your core and remain stiff the entire time

- When you lift your arm and leg do not let your back move at all!!

- Hold for a full exhale, then lower the arm and leg back down, alternate sides

When done correctly you will feel this working through your core / abs! You should not feel it in your lower back at all!!
