Exercise of the Day: Bear Crawl

For CrossFit enthusiasts, the Bear Crawl is a staple. This is one exercise that engages your entire body, especially your core! You may feel a little silly at first, but trust me, it's well worth it. The Bear Crawl helps develop your coordination, speed, agility, and cardio fitness while engaging all your major muscle groups at the same time!

1-Start in a table-top position, face down. Your wrists, elbows, and shoulders are all in one line, and your hips are over your knees.
2-Raise your knees so your feet are flat on the floor, but your shoulders and hands are still in line. This is the basic bear position.
3-Now walk forward 20 feet, keeping your body low.

You can mix up the bear crawl in many different ways. Hold dumbbells in each hand as you walk. Walk sideways. Walk backwards. Walk 3 steps then do a monkey pushup, repeat.

Have fun with the Bear Crawl as part of your workout today!!
