Crawls for Shoulder Health

Bear crawls and Lateral Crawls (and variations of the two) find their way into our programs a lot, sometimes in the actual lift and sometimes it’s in the warm up, for a variety of reasons;

✅Closed chain

✅Core Stability

✅Hits the often neglected serratus anterior

✅Promotes scapular rotation

To be honest, this is one of my favorite unconventional shoulder health movements that has some other benefits that come along with it.

And because I know there are some people that are curious, we use the tennis ball 🎾to slow people down and maintain control and stability of the core through some simple external cueing.
