Give these 7 crawling drills a try, and watch your abs and arms get lean and strong:
The “Work Your BODY” Workout Move.
Functional and Simple.
Even a baby can do it!
We did it when we were little.
Now we never crawl and when we do it seems ridiculously hard…especially crawling backwards (And the crazy part is… some of us even started crawling by crawling backwards!)
But crawling is probably the best core move you AREN’T doing!
When you do a tabletop crawl, you work everything down the front of your body from your shoulders to your knees.
So how do you do it?
1. Start on your hands and knees with your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.
2. Draw in your belly button toward your spine and tuck your toes under and lift up onto your hands and toes.
3. Move forward by moving the opposite arm and opposite leg. So step forward with your left hand and right foot.
4. Stay on your toes and focus on keeping your knees close to the ground and your butt down as you move!
Crawling can be done forwards, backwards, laterally and even in circles!
Want a strong core?
Crawling is one of Innovative Results favorite ways to build stability, strength and increase body awareness.
Crawling is a contra-lateral movement, which is a fancy word for right arm and left leg moving together, while the left arm and right leg move together.
This is how we walk, run, swim, and bike from one place to another.
It is a great way to train your brain, and we have given you some crawling moves to train your body as well.
Enjoy these core, ab, upper body, lower body, and brain enhancing movements.
