About Crawl Training

Crawling is a developmental movement pattern that builds connections between neural pathways. This allows the brain to become a more efficient communicator between its left and right hemispheres.

In addition, crawling unifies the sensory systems of the body. The vestibular, or balance, system, is aligned with the proprioceptive and visual systems. The result is that trainers are more balanced, spacially aware and have improved hand eye coordination.

Crawl training also develops reflexive strength. This relates to the body’s ability to anticipate movement before it happens. It is the foundation of all strength development. By teaching the shoulders and hips to work together in a coordinated fashion, crawling quickly improves the trainers’ coordinated opposite limb movement. At the same time, it reflexively stimulates the muscles throughout the arms, legs and torso, teaching them to ‘fire’ on command.

When a person is upright, the spine carries 60% of their weight and can quickly become one of the body’s weak links. 70% of the body’s blood is below the heart, which isn’t conducive to it being pumped back to the heart. Also the head, being the highest point of the body, can easily lack blood supply. Many biologists believe that coronary heart disease, high blood pressure and spinal diseases are related to being upright.

Crawl training takes the head and heart from a vertical to a horizontal position, lowering the center of gravity. This allows the blood to circulate clearly to the heart and head. It also eases the weight bearing demands on the spine.

Other benefits of crawl training are that it . . .

Resets the central nervous system
Lowers stress levels
Improves exercise recovery
Improves memory and eyesight
Improves digestion
Enhances core strength
