Most back and neck pain is caused by either under-active glutes leading to excessive strain put on the lumber spine or under-active mid and lower trapizius muscles leading to a rounded thoracic, back and neck pain. Does one of these sound like you? Yes? Then this is the exercise for you. Bird-dog gets your glutes fired up to move and stabilize during the movement. Your abdominals are activated to secure your spine in place, and your mid to lower trapezius is engaged to extend your arm. This move could seriously improve your day and every day after that!!!
Really simple here. DWFG. Do What Feels Good! This move is all about improving posture, so your challenge today is just to follow the video and perform the exercise. You pass the challenge if you do it once through. If you spend a lot of time at a computer, I would recommend following along with the video more often. Try doing 20 bird-dogs for every hour of computer work. Check out our Bird-Dog Exercise – Back Pain Buster video!
