Thanks for checking out Down with the Fitness, a daily guide to help you improve your health, and your life, in manageable steps!

Today’s #FridayFlow introduces the bear crawl. This is an awesome exercise for building a ton of upper body and core strength WHILE improving your joint health AND challenging your motor control. That's a lot of cool, helpful stuff!

Those benefits aside, you can also do a bunch of fun flow movements (like the ones demonstrated in the intro) from the base position that I explain in the video:

There will be follow up posts on how to advance things, so really master this now, or you’ll be re-reading this when I link back to it on posts about all the more advanced crawl-based flows I love so much. (Hey future readers!)

As always, if you ever have any questions or comments, you're invited to join the Down With The Fitness Facebook Group
