Preventing Cycling Injuries & Low Back Pain – The Dead Bug Core Strengthening

Hi everybody, just Simon here again. Just going to give you a simple core exercise to do just to strengthen the core. Core is very important like I said before because it creates a stable base just to power into the lower limbs.

So the start position for this is if you just lie on your back, sort of hips and knees at ninety degrees, and arms up like I am here now, and then you're going to extend out your bottom left leg and extend out your right arm, nice nice straight and steady. Then you're going to come back to the start position. Then you're going to do the same on your right leg, extend out right leg and extend back your left arm. Perfect!

Then you’re going to do 10 reps of each for three sets if you can.
