How To Crawl For Total Body Strength

So just a quick one for you guys today because I’m going surfing this morning – Read about why I suck at surfing HERE

We had a lot of requests for that crawling tutorial video that I said I would share with you in Tuesday’s email.

So here it is…

Not only will Leopard Crawling strengthen and stabilize your abs as I mentioned on Tuesday…

BUT it will also help bulletproof your shoulders.

(Bet you didn’t know that crawling was how we strengthened our shoulders when we were babies.)

A lot of experts say that you should do exercises with elastic bands attached to doorknobs to strengthen your shoulders.

The problem is exercises like those isolate specific muscles in your shoulder…

BUT the muscles in your shoulder DO NOT work in isolation.

They work as a cohesive unit.

Just like how your abs are the link between your upper and lower body which creates a cohesive unit that works in coordination of each other.

So your whole body is a cohesive unit and network of muscles, organs, bones & nerves.

I don’t use “just” my shoulders to paddle out on a surf board…

My entire body works to stabilize and stay on the board while my arms are working to bring me out (or prevent me from wiping out).

It’s kinda like life – where it’s naturally optimal to function as part of a unit…

To be cooperative and contribute to the well-being of others and in turn, helping yourself.

The sum being greater than the individual parts. #deepthoughts šŸ˜‰

Whoa, I think this “surf & yoga” lifestyle is getting to my head šŸ™‚

Surf’s Up,

P.S. If you want a really good shoulder strengthener, then combine crawling with Get-Ups.
