Quadrupedal Movement


Recommended Posts

Ah heck yeah! QM!

I train QM every time I parkour. I like to challenge myself and balance on the top of the rock walls at my apartments. There's one that's at an incline and I like to crawl down and then go backwards... it really hits your core and coordination!

i used to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and some of our warmups were Bear Crawls and Crocodile Walks. i believe these are different than standard QM because, in Bear Crawls, all of your appendages are stiff, and in Crocodile Walks, you shift your weight drastically from side to side.

who can confirm and/or dispute this?

I definitely think that bear crawls and croc walks fall under the QM category cuz it's still a specific movement on all fours. It's like the gorilla run, or monkey run, it's not a typical QM move, but it still hits the same muscle groups when being worked. I love using all the animal movements, makes for one killer workout!

I love QM. I actually try to use it in everyday situations. Like I've made myself a rule at home that I never go up and down my stairs on just my feet.

LOL.. now I don't feel so weird.. sometimes I love pouncing up the stairs on all fours like I'm a cougar or a panther going up. Gets you up there pretty fast too and silent.

Yay for quadrupedal! I didn't know the acronym :) QM is a pretty good one...definitely a staple of training. In the last two years people have been doing incredible contact work (butt or whatevs) which blends nicely with QM. E.g.:
