Got a little time to kill between ball slams, cirbies and your kb jerks? Try this. The bear crawl is an awesome tool for active recovery and some extra rotational training.

Welcome back. Miss me?

We’re always talking about moving objects through space. Pushing, pulling, dragging, whatever, just move yourself and a load through space to train your body, your machine in a total systemic fashion. So, here’s a couple of examples of that very thing using a sandbag and a TRX. No TRX? Get on it and buy one. It’s one of the best $150 you’ve spent in fitness. But for now, no problem. Pull a couple of grips off the cable cross machine, or take a rope from the garage and go to town.
If you’ve been able to work up to it by now, substitute in the kbs with a clean and jerk on the man makers. If not, just use the dbs as you normally would. In either case, these do include the front squat with each one. Refer to last week’s video demo for reference.
