Here's an exercise we should all add in to our daily routine!

The bird dog exercise works the erector spinae, rectus abdominis, and glutes. This allows for correct movement, control, and stability of the whole body. It's an ideal exercise for people with low back concerns, including hypermobility, and it can help to develop good balance and posture.

  1. Point one arm out straight in front and extend the opposite leg behind you, forming a straight line from your extended hand to the extended foot. Keep your hips squared to the ground. If your low back begins to sag, raise your leg only as high as you can while keeping the back straight.

  2. Hold for a few seconds, then return to your hands and knees. Keep your abs engaged throughout the entire exercise and work to minimize any extra motion in your hips during the weight shift.

  3. Switch to the other side.
