Position of the Week: The Bear Crawl

You’d be forgiven for thinking we’re talking about something you might see at 5am in certain clubs in Vauxhall. Alas no, we’re talking fitness, so clean that dirty mind right away please.

The Bear Crawl
This week, we’re going back to babyhood and looking at crawling for inspiration. There’s nothing babyish about the Bear Crawl however, a killer move for your upper body and a serious test of your muscular endurance.

1. Get down on all fours, legs and body low but knees not touching the ground.
2. Propel yourself forwards in a fast crawl.
3. Crawl for 3 sets of 60 seconds, with 20 seconds rest in between. To make it harder, you can try performing this backwards and/or sideways too.
