Bear Crawl Exercise - Martial Arts Conditioning Exercise

This page provides details on how to do the Bear Crawl exercise. This odd looking exercise involves getting down on your hands and feet and then rapidly "crawling" across the floor. The Bear Crawl is a great conditioning workout and it also strengthens a student's core, upper body and lower body.

Conditioning exercises can also be modified to entertain younger students. For example, martial arts schools use bear crawl races as a game in order to "hide" a useful strength and conditioning workout.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more conditioning exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Conditioning page.
