Crab Walk Drill

This Video is part of the Performance Plus Strengthening Series. The Crab Walk is a good exercise to promote strength and control of the hips and core and is useful in all aspects of hitting and throwing.  Commence standing in an athletic position, with the knees slightly bent and feet facing forward.  You can use a band around the knees or feet to increase the difficulty. Take a shuffle step to the side making sure you don’t twist the leg or pelvis. Stabilise the lead leg and then control the rear leg to step back into the athletic position.  Continue for 15m and return facing the same way to work the other side. As with all the strengthening exercises try and maintain trunk and head control as you perform the exercises. Best done as 6 sets.
