BEST ABDOMINAL EXERCISES: THE DEAD BUG WALL PUSH
Today I want to share with you a really awesome abdominal exercise that you’ve probably never heard of. It’s called the “Dead Bug Wall Push”.
This is actually one of the very best abdominal exercises you can possibly do to activate your core muscles.
This will help to stimulate muscle growth in your abs (making your six pack more visible assuming your body fat levels are low enough), increase your strength on big core movements like squats and deadlifts, and protect your lower back as well.
Proper Dead Bug Wall Push Form
This is actually a fairly simple exercise to execute and you can view the proper form in the video at the top of this page.
You’re simply going to lie on the floor perpendicular to a wall, press your hands against the wall and then raise and lower your legs one at a time.
There are two key things you have to do with this exercise in order to make it effective.
1) Lock your rib cage down and keep your lower back pressed against the floor.
2) Push against the wall with your hands throughout the entire exercise.
If you forget to do either one of those two things, the effectiveness of this exercise is going to be drastically reduced. The dead bug wall push is one of the best abdominal exercises out there if done correctly, so make sure to keep your form very strict.
Make sure to perform each rep slowly and deliberately, keeping constant tension on the abs throughout the entire movement.
You can include the dead bug wall push in any abdominal routine that you’re doing.
I’d recommend doing two sets of 8-12 reps.
