Resistance Bear Crawls
Why: to build up shoulder and hip stability What You Need: resistance band, at level height with torso Starting Position: • Standing, place the top loop of resistance band so that it rests against back of the neck. Tuck sides of loop underneath armpits, so that the band is stretched back against the upper side body. • Bend down to tabletop position on floor, keeping hands in line with shoulders. Knees should be off the ground and directly under hips. Form a straight line between the neck and back. Torso and shins are parallel to the floor.

Move left foot up mat and reach right arm forward in front of body, leveling out the hips and shoulders. • Repeat process. Then reverse the steps. • Maintaining control, bring right foot back and move left arm under shoulder. Bring left foot back and move right arm under shoulder. • Repeat process until back at starting position.
