Of all the things you could try to improve your health and fitness, it’s a safe bet that you’ve probably never considered crawling. After all, crawling is for babies! But actually it might be better for you than you think. This new exercise can help you to be more fit, more mobile, more fluid in your movements and less prone to injuries. Research has also proven that, if you crawl for as little as three minutes per day, you could be building your core and healing back problems!
If this sounds too good to be true, you need to understand that crawling isn’t actually easy. Sure anyone can get from one end of the room to the other on their hands and knees, but there’s a certain method you need to follow in order for the crawling to work. According to experts, adults who embrace crawling need to recognize that they’re supposed to move with all four limbs. That means that they need to keep their heads held high and their gaze straight ahead (try it, it’s actually pretty challenging!) and remember to move the opposite arm and leg. Okay, now that sounds like exercise.
