Dead bugs are considered as an anti- extension exercise as  the body resists arching the lower back when one moves their hands and  legs. The exercise strengthens the core muscles specifically, the  deepest core abdominal muscles known as transverse abdominis.

How to  do it:

  • First lie down on your back with straight arms till the shoulder  length raised toward the ceiling. Now bring your legs up into tabletop  position (knees bent 90 degrees and stacked over your hips). Gradually extend your right leg straight, while simultaneously  bringing your left arm overhead. Keep them up from the ground a few  inches.
  • Bring your arm and leg back to the starting position.
  • Repeat on the other side, extending your left leg and your right arm.  That's 1 rep.
  • Continue alternating for 12–15 reps.

It is isometric exercise that helps to make the entire core,  shoulders, triceps, and upper back strong. Start holding a plank  position from 10 to 15 seconds without taking a break or disturbing  the pose. If 10 to 15 seconds is easy then go for 30 to 45 seconds  initially.

How to do it:

  • Your arms and the legs are the most used part in the exercise  therefore make them firm and start from your arms and knees.  Your  hands should be shoulder-width apart; your knees should be about  hip-width apart.
  • Now lift up your knees from the ground and step your feet back so that  you can keep your legs straight and fully extended.
  • Next you have to keep your core, butt, and quads tight, and avoid  arching your back.
  • Keep your neck in a neutral position and do not lower its preposition  too much. Hold for 30 seconds.

The bent-over row is an exercise targeting  the back and shoulder muscles . This pulling exercise also demands  core engagement, especially when you're doing this single-arm version.  One has to keep their core tight, back flat, and neck in a neutral  position while doing the exercise to reduce the chance of straining  any muscles.

How to do it:

  • Start by standing in a split-stance position then bend your knees, and  hinge forward at your hips so that your torso is leaning forward.
  • Keep the other elbow on your front leg.
  • Now maintain the position and row the dumbbell up to chest level,  keeping your elbow tight.
  • Next you have to gradually take the dubel back to its place, lower the  dumbbell back to the starting position. That up and down is 1 rep.
  • Do 12–15 reps on each arm.
