Crawling is one of the most bang for your buck exercises I can think of. Not only is it an easy exercise to accomplish in good form, but its also super effective for fat loss, coordination, core conditioning, and fundamental strength. Additionally, its something you can do almost anywhere

Below are some crawling variations that you can try. These exercises are a progression, which means that you should start with the first exercise and not move on to the next exercise until you have mastered the prior exercise.

An easy way to incorporate these crawling variations into a workout is to do the highest level crawling variation that you can maintain good form for 30 seconds, rest 30 seconds, and repeat 8-10 times. You can also pair these crawling variations up with big lifts like squats and deadlifts, or you can add them to a cardio circuit. You can even do low level variations on recovery days to get in some quality movement without creating soreness or stress on the body.

Thats a lot reasons to crawl, and a lot of ways to find a crawling variation that is right for you. I hope you find some value in adding crawling to your fitness routine, and incorporate them today.
