An exercise is only great if we get an opportunity to teach the body how to connect to the chains, how to move smarter, and what weight brings in not just challenging our body but making it smarter. That’s why our #DVRT bird dog strength coach @joelgun10 works so well! The Ultimate #Sandbag connects our lats and core while the @perform_better mini band makes us engage our core from the ground up! Best of all this teaches the full chain of pat, core, and glutes also known as our Posterior Oblique System. As Joel explains....
How do you activate your #core ?
Bird dogs is a great core exercise!
Are are you doing it in a way to not only “activate” your core, but to also build strength and correct form?
Using #DVRT methods to connect the chains.
Using the Ultimate Sandbag and mini-band to not only add load, but to give feedback. ✔️Screwing and gripping the hand into the floor, activating my lats and connecting my shoulder hips and pelvis, creating the perfect plank though my thoracic and lumbar spine.
✔️Push my feel into the ground, creating tension from the ground up. From my toes, to my pelvis/glues, to my lats/shoulders, to my hands and fingers.
✔️Dragging the USB, not lifting the bag, and using the mini-band to connect the body. Dragging the bag and creating tension through the lats through the core. Using the mini-bass to pull and push with the lower body, activating the glutes and hamstrings.
