It’s Day 82 of the one exercise a day challenge and we’re dialing back the intensity with today’s move. It’s the: BIRD DOG. If you thought your balance and mobility was on-point, this simple exercise will put you to the test. The bird dog is great for increasing the range of motion in your hips and shoulders, while also stabilizing and strengthening your abs, shoulders, and back. It’s one of my favorite moves to add to a pre-workout core routine. Check it out!
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
Alternate completing 20 repetitions of this move on each side for a total of 2 to 5 rounds. By the end of your workout, you’ll have completed anywhere between 80 and 200 repetitions.
MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING
If you think you’ve mastered the bird dog, you can dial up the intensity by starting in a bear crawl position, with your knees off the mat. Try to avoid letting your torso swing side to side while you lift your limbs.
