Dead Bug

Type: Abs
The dead bug exercise is aptly named because it imitates the actions of a dying bug. Apart from the name it's a great exercise for working the whole abdominal region. Dead bugs also improve coordination of movement between the arms and legs. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describe the correct technique for performing dead bug exercises.

Lie flat on your back on a gym mat.

Step 5:
Then simultaneously raise them back again to the start position.
