31 Oct Exercise for Confidence: Polar “Bear” Crawl
It’s Halloween and today I pride myself in dressing cute instead of…you know, raunchy.
Sure, most women see Halloween as an opportune time to let loose and rock a naughty get-up, but because I had to go into work today, I kept things conservative.
Other years, I was anything from Katy Perry to a ring leader to Megan Fox to Jigsaw from Saw.
Yes. That happened. And yes, I had a tricycle that I stole from a nearby kindergarten.
So in celebration of Halloween and not being a total slut, I’m terming this week’s Exercise for Confidence as the “Polar Bear” crawl.
Check it out:
Why I Like It:
– Focuses on reflexive strength through the “X” or core. Opposite limb movement provides coordinated movement that helps us to walk, run, and sprint.
– Compared to conventional bear crawls, this provides more stress on the anterior core.
– Excellent for upper body strength and shoulder stability.
– Works in all planes of motion. You can get creative and do forward, backward, circle, or lateral crawls.
Of course, I stole this from the guys of Original Strength. Duh.
Normally this one is called a leopard crawl due to the low knee position, but I termed it polar bear crawl because well…fluffy white boots. ;-0
Enjoy and let me know how you do.
