Supine Balance - Added Contact Point Holding Dome

by Keli Roberts

Description

This core exercise progression is a great way to build stability for the torso. Start in a supine position with your feet lifted. Now from here, start a small forward and back movement with your legs while your hands are holding onto the dome for added stability. To progress, take your hands away and reach them straight up and then like crawling, perform a dead bug. You want to make sure the shoulders are lifted. As a further progression, increase the range of motion. Stretch out as you perform this great drill that strengthens the core.
