This is a short program that will introduce some different ways of crawling and develop the capacity to easily and quickly coordinate and feel either opposite or same side limbs working in quadrupedal crawling patterns.
3 major patterns will be demonstrated, and each pattern will be performed in multiple directions and as rotations.
These practices are reasonably low impact and are a great way to begin exploring ground based movements that use both the hands and feet. They are not meant to represent any particular "correct" way of moving - the world of ground based movement is extremely large with many approaches that each develop particular attributes. I hope you can use these movements to begin your own exploration of crawling and other locomotive patterns, and not get stuck on these particular drills.
Many people have had a profound influence and impact on my training, and I am forever grateful to these people. They are too numerous to list here, although you can find a links to most of their websites on my resources page:
Please take some time to check these people out, and support them where possible - their work is something of a treasure in the modern age.
