Here is the lizard crawl part 2! After you've mastered the basic forms of the lizard crawl, you can get very creative with it and tweak the crawl into almost anything.
The lizard crawl is comprehensively featured in our Movement 20XX course and mastering the basics is the prerequisite for attempting to take the crawl movements step further.
This is the part 2 of our lizard crawl mastery series and it covers 4 interesting and advanced variations of the crawl.
Advanced lizard crawl variations featured in the video:
- Sideways lizard crawl
- Backwards lizard crawl where you push yourself backwards with 1 arm
- Fast small-step lizard walk
- Forearm lizard crawl
Moving sideways with the crawl is tough, because the sideways movement adds a difficult coordination element to the crawl.
The backwards crawl where you push with only one arm, is basically involves an intense side press! This is an excellent way to build triceps and shoulders.
The fast small-step lizard is likely the most lizard-like crawl we've ever filmed. Forearm lizard on the other hand is just a fun variation of the crawl.
In the previous lizard crawl mastery part 1, we talked about how phenomenal lizard crawl is for building strength, size and increasing mobility in the entire body.
These movements are incredibly tough, but their benefits are worth it.
Pushing strength in all lifts will go up, abs will get stronger and more defined and the increased mobility in the shoulders and hips allows you to take your athleticism to a whole another level.
Like said before, you need to fully master the basics before you can even attempt these special variations.
PS. If you liked the part 1 and this part 2, you will love part 3...
