Over the last few weeks we have been concentrating on our midline stabilization and bird dogs has been one of those exercises that we have been incorporating during our warmups.
So here are just a few reasons why bird dogs on a bench (preferably) are so awesome:
1.) Great for Core Stability
2.) Great for Glute Activation
3.) Great for Shoulder Stabilization
4.) Great for the Hip Flexors
5.) Use it in your Warm-Up
To Complete this Exercise:
Strong core muscles are important for athletes and this area can be easily neglected. Weak core muscles can lead to more fatigue, less endurance and a ton of injuries. Get that core strong!
Give this exercise a try and let us know what you think!
