Glute Bridge and Dead Bug Exercise – Progressions

Here are two ways to progress both the dead bug and glute bridge exercises

1) Dead bug: place one end of a band around the arch of your foot and the second end in the fist of your hand. Then pull the two ends apart against the resistance.
IMPORTANT: be sure to engage your core throughout the entire exercise and be sure to not loose it.

2) Glute Bridge: place one band around your thighs just above your knees. Then a second band under your feet and around the top of your hips. Spread your legs a bit to engage your glutes more then lift up through your hips against the second resistance.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to engage your glutes and core before you lift. Also be sure you are only lifting as high as you comfortably can without straining your neck.
