Animal movements are one of the best bodyweight exercise that you incorporate in your workout. Crocodile walk is one of the best bodyweight exercise and also very challenging for beginners and intermediates as well.

If I could rank the animal movements in terms of their overall effect on the body musculature and their level of hardness in performance, then the Crocodile Walk may be on the toughest and highly effective movement and the best bodyweight exercise you could perform.

The crocodile walk involves very high skilled movements that involve coordination, flexibility, and strength which makes it the best bodyweight exercise. This movement is not an easy one and maybe a challenge for an absolute beginner to perform initially.

To perform the movement:

  1. Get into a push-up position with arms slightly wide.

  1. Keeping one hand on the ground. Move the other hand forward so as to reach a further distance and at the same time lift the opposite leg to push the body forward as shown in the picture.

  1. As you touch the hand and opposite leg ahead on the ground go down as you bend in a push-up position.

  1. Now, push the body up and use the other hand and leg to take the next step and repeat the above procedure such that in every step you bend the body from side to side along the trunk.

For the beginners, the hips may remain high in the air which is fine but as you gain coordination and strength, make sure the hips remain down in line with the body.

HOW MUCH SHOULD BE THE OPTIMAL WORKOUT TIME IN THE GYM?

When people tell me that they spend 2-4hrs in the gym each day, I just listen and wonder, what the hell are they doing there for so long. My thoughts get more intense, when I see their putrid body composition, despite of spending all that time in the gym. My next question to them is […]
