3 legged dog or the Limping Dog, also called a single-leg bear crawl is an extremely challenging animal movement. In fact, most well-conditioned people are panting just after performing this movement for a few seconds.
This animal movement is challenging as we are now using only one leg to propel ourselves forward. This puts additional weight on the hands and shoulders. Also, this animal movement will not be a walk as we do on four limbs in Bear Walk but actually there will be a jump from the rear leg every time you move forward.
To perform this animal movement:
The aim should be to increase the speed and cover the maximum distance. But make sure the arms and legs are slightly bent or it will put a lot of pressure on the elbows.
This is an excellent animal movement to build strength in the upper body especially shoulders. On top of that, the primary focus is on increasing your workout capacity in using those components of fitness which we don’t often use in conventional workouts. In the case of animal workouts, we are working a lot of “strength endurance”.
