Exercise of the Week: Bug on a Roller

Exercise of the Week:  Bug on a Roller

Coach Rebecca demonstrates the exercise of the week: bug on a roller. Good for core muscles and core control. Lie on back with head and trunk supported by a foam roller that is a few inches off the wall. Hands behind and touching the wall for balance. Engage core and raise knees to 90 degrees. From that position, with control, tap one heel at a time to the ground. Start with 2-3 sets, 10 reps each leg. As you get stronger, add in bicycle legs, ankle weights, and holding in the flexed position for 30-60 seconds with closed eyes.
