In this article, we want to see 5 types of ground crawling exercises for beginners.

Important premises:

Do stretching before starting (read Basic soft stretching and How to correctly perform stretching)
These exercises can be performed as a warm-up (read Basic warm-up and How to correctly perform warm-up)
Train safely, do not train what is in pain (read also Safe training: the 3 errors rule)
We have not invented these exercises but we have adapted them to our needs, it is therefore necessary to emphasize that there are other versions
Exercise 1: drag from the sitting position
Ideal for arms and legs warm-up and for muscle chain
This exercise is useful to get used employing arms on ground fighting (read Ground fighting)
Let's sit on the ground with the legs should be partially stretched
The palms of our hands and our feet should rest on the ground
The goal of the exercise is to move backward using body coordination (read Use the body power: the muscle chain)
We have to push on the ground with hands and feet with our hands in the backward direction
While we push our buttocks raises, the legs stretch and the feet raise
Then we return to the initial position and cyclically, we repeat the past steps
Let's try to involve our entire body in a wave-like motion that starts from the feet and arrive at the head
Let's try to be as fast and coordinated as possible
Exercise 2: drag the broken leg
Ideal to learn how to move with a damaged leg
The same of exercise 1 but with one leg
The leg at rest remains stretched on the ground as if it is broken
The leg at rest must be rigid (for advanced practitioners it can also be suspended from the ground)
The leg at rest should obviously be alternated
Exercise 3: soldier crawl
Ideal for coordination, body symmetry, stamina and for muscle chain
This exercise is useful to move fast on ground fighting and for stealth
Let's lie down on the floor on the stomach (only the head should be raised)
We lean on the forearms but without touching the ground with the hands
The goal of the exercise is to move forward using a "crossed" body coordination
To advance we must first push stretching the right leg and "grabbing" the ground with the left forearm (in sync) and then vice versa
While the left arm pushes the left leg is dragged and vice versa
Repeating cyclically these steps we can move forward
The more we can engage smoothly shoulders, hips, abs, breathing (etc.), the more we will move quickly and effortlessly
The more we are uncoordinated (legs raised, asynchronous movements, etc.), the more we will move slowly
Let's try to gains speed and harmony (if we are working well, we should move fast and quiet)
Exercise 4: inverted soldier crawl
Ideal for coordination, body symmetry and muscle chain
This exercise can be useful to move on the ground when we need to control what happens above us
Let's lie down on the floor on the back (the head and the arms are raised, the feet touch the ground)
The goal of the exercise is to move backward using a "crossed" body coordination
To advance we must push with the right foot and with the left shoulder (in sequence) and then vice versa
While the left foot pushes the left buttock raises and vice versa
Repeating cyclically these steps we can move backward (in head direction)
The movement must look like a side swing (almost as if we were giving hooks)
The more we can engage smoothly shoulders, hips, abs, breathing (etc.), the more we will move quickly and effortlessly
The more we are uncoordinated (asynchronous movements, etc.), the more we will move slowly
Let's try to gains speed and harmony (if we are working well, we should move fast and quiet)
The exercise can be also performed without completely touching the ground with the feet (only the external side)
Exercise 5 (rolling in length)
Ideal for, coordination, ground fighting and to accustom our balance to the unusual movements of the struggle
This exercise is one of the fastest ways to move when we're on the ground
Let's lie down on the floor on the side with the body is completely stretched
If we want to go to the left, the left forearm and the right palm of the foot are bent touch the ground
The goal of the exercise is to move laterally using a loop rotation
To advance we have to rotate the shoulders and (in sync) press on the ground with the right foot (in the left direction)
When the right arm touches the ground, it pushes (together with the shoulders) in the left direction to perpetuate the revolution
During the rotation, the movement must follow a straight line and the passive elements of our body must remain rigid
We can also try to push with the right toes to add extra speed
Repeating cyclically these steps we can move on the left (or, inverting the parts, on the right)
The more we are coordinated, the more we will move quickly and effortlessly
The more we are uncoordinated (unwanted bending of the lower part of the body, etc.), the more we will move slowly
Let's try to gains speed and harmony (if we are working well, we should move fast and quiet)
The first times we will suffer a little dizziness, it's normal (remember to go first in one direction and then immediately in the other)
All of these exercises have to be performed for (at least) for 10 minutes. We can do specific sessions of each of them or we can divide the amount of time dedicated executing altogether (eg. 2 minutes each).

Variations
These are safe and extremely simple ground crawling exercises ideal for beginners (or as a warm-up) but they can be performed also by advanced practitioners or (with some adaptations) as stealth techniques.

Let's see some interesting variations (not for novices):

Tie an elastic rope to the wall and to our abdomen to slow down / hinder our movement
Wear a weighted vest (15-25 Kg) to make the exercise harder
Add obstacles on the ground
Let's retrieve or lift items at each turn (weights, weapons, etc.)
...
A note by Master Kongling - If we want to train stealth skills, let's concentrate on noises, on staying as low as possible and on taking up as little space as possible. In addition to this, we should try to cover uneven paths and to prolong the workout well over 10 minutes (so as to build the right stamina).

In the next article of this series, we will see more ground crawling exercises.
