Yes, Jordan Still Crawls

I knew that would get your attention... and yes, I mean Jordan works out with actual crawling movements.

Golf Digest posted this video on Friday. It features Jordan's fitness trainer Damon Goddard demonstrating three exercises that use crawling as a golf exercise.

The three exercises he demonstrates are:
  • Half Bear Crawl
  • Half Crab Reach (a rotation move)
  • Lateral Bear Crawl
These three movements focus on working the opposite sides of your body, which is how most human motion works. (This is Physics 101, folks -- for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If the upper left side of your body moves forward, the lower right side also moves forward, and so on.) By working your body this way, they help increase your core and shoulder strength as well as your balance and coordination.

The key thing to remember is that your knees do NOT touch the floor.

I've seen much more elaborate methods of doing these exercises but this is the first time I've seen them done in a small area. But don't let the simplicity of these movements fool you. A useful side effect is that they'll also help your endurance -- trust me, these exercises are harder than they look.
