Exercise of the Week: Bear crawl

When was the last time you got down on the floor and crawled? Probably sometime around when you were a baby, right?  The bear crawl is a great way to challenge your entire upper body and core.

Travel the length of a room or for a duration of time. Switch up the direction (forward, backward, left and right). Add it into circuits or warm ups.

Execution points:

• Keep knees off the floor.
• Arms and legs move in opposition.
• Maintain a tight core and stable back.
• Head stays in line with spine.

Simple moves make great workouts.
