09 Jun Technique Tuesday: Bear Crawl
I am picky with Bear Crawls.
For young athletes going through their growth spurt when coordination disturbances are common, and core stability can wane, I want to reinforce contralateral movement patterns of the opposite arm and leg, while simultaneously working on trunk stability.
Do not perform Bear Crawls like a boot camp style class. Remember, we are working with maturing, growing kids who need our care when it comes to quality movement.
Here is this week’s Technique Tuesday on the Bear Crawl:
