Crab Walk and Bear Crawl, you won't find a youth wresting room in the country without them.

8 count body builders. Card p.t.(each suit in a deck is assigned an exercise. face value of numbered cards is number of reps. face cards are 10, aces 15, joker is twice the number of the next card. do one deck as rapidly as you can.

1) Bear walks - walk on all fours with your butt sticking up in the air. Weight is supported almost equally by both arms and legs. It's important to walk slowly as walking too fast results in the legs bearing all the weight.

2) Crab walks - make a "table" with your body, facing up, with torso, groin and quads (thigh) forming a line parallel to floor. Walk around on hands and feet. This can be done both forward and backward.

3) Alligator crawls - assume the push-up position. Bend arms slightly. Now crawl around using ONLY your arms - your feet just sort of drag around behind you.

4) Duck walks - squat down such that your weight is on the balls of your feet and your heels off the floor. Hands are at the waist. Now walk around in this squatted position.

5) Tiger walks - assume push-up position. Bend arms slightly. Now walk around using both arms and legs. Sort of like a combination of the bear walks and alligator crawl.

6) Gorilla walks - assume position as in bear walk but hands are folded into fists, fists are "palm down" such that weight is on all fingers and thumb. Now "walk" by reaching forward with both arms, planting both arms and then "jumping" your legs forward. If you've seen gorillas "running" on all fours or seen the film "Congo", you'll get the idea.

7) Kangaroo jumps - stand upright, feet shoulder width apart. Bend legs slightly and then explosively jump forward as far as you can. As soon as you land, jump again. And again. Etc.

to this I added shrimping, lunges, monkey jumps-deep squats jumps with hands clapping overhead.
