Crab Walk

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on floor facing direction of crawling path. Place arms back to each side and bend knees so hands and feet are on floor. Raise hips off of floor.

Execution

Crawl forward through crawling path.

Comments

Standard hand position is typically pointing out to sides, however, hands can also point back as shown. Intensity is normally increased by crawling faster. Although not commonly performed, crawling up long incline surface (eg: grassy hill side) would also make exercise more challenging. Also see Crab Walk traveling backwards.
