Today my pal Ryan from GMB Fitness is back with part 2 of his strength and mobility series. Check out part 1 here. What if you could spend a few minutes per day using nothing but your body weight to build functional upper body strength, train your core, and improve your hip mobility? No equipment necessary, and no gym membership, either. It might sound too good to be true, but you can. We'll show you the exact animal movements you need and how to do them. We'll cover three specific exercises: the Bear, Monkey, and Frogger. They're all similar in that they contribute to full body strength, control, and mobility, but they serve you in different ways. Try These Three Animal Movements for Strong Shoulders, a Stable Core, and Flexible Hips Why should you walk around on your hands and feet like an animal? To start, it's surprisingly good for you. This form of movement is called locomotion because you're moving your body through space. Walking is a good example of locomotion. We use animal movements due to the stimulus it provides for the entire body and because it's way different from anything else you do during your day. For most of the day, you're in the typical upright position with your head on top of the body. When you get down on all fours, you're actively getting out of this posture and into a novel one where you're inverted and your head is hanging down toward the ground. For instance, look at Ryan's head position here doing the Bear: Inverting yourself helps load your shoulders and provides traction for the spine. That allows for some decompression of the spine and neck. When you start to move around with intention, you will notice some relief in tension that we all tend to hold in our back and neck. Another positive aspect of getting inverted is the shift in body position allows for a change in circulation and respiratory responses, counteracting a lot of the sitting we're doing on a daily basis. When you do these movements regularly, you'll build a strong upper back and shoulders, which carries over to activities that require any amount of upper body strength. You'll also strengthen your core and improve your stability as you're forced to balance yourself while you work through these exercises. Here's exactly how to do each animal movement. Getting Started with Bear Walks How to do the Bear: Get down on all fours (hands and feet) with your arms straight and keeping a slight bend in your knees. Now start to move by lifting your right hand and left foot, pushing them forward. Repeat the same thing with your left hand and right foot, walking forward. You can keep up this pattern moving forward or backward. The Bear loads your shoulders and upper back, allowing you to build strength as you get comfortable with the movement. It also gets you into spinal extension and allows for some decompression of the spine … Continue reading "Three Animal Movements for Strength and Mobility"
