The crab walk puts you in a position never used for non-exercise or daily motion purposes. Balancing on your hands and feet with your front facing the ceiling and your hips thrust upwards, the crab walk challenges muscles to work in an unfamiliar way while stretching the muscles together and your body as a whole. Simply maintaining the position is a good workout but taking a few crabby steps back and forward and to either side results in extra strengthening and stretching for a full body workout.
