Animal walking and Animal strength Training
With an open area to practice in you can explore the floor space using different animal stances and walks, try to build speed in to these exersieses and change of pace movements and direction. Practice going forwards and backwads doing the animal stances , practicing doing these while holding a weight. I have been using my ab wheel in some of these movement s and it is extreemly difficult but very effective for tageting the whole body and building a unique endurance.
Not many people train like an animal, people get big arms or good at doing crunches for the six pack, but dont get the entire fitness level high enough as a whole, doing more coordinated and complex bodyweight movements like handstands and animal walks builds strength at every layer of your body. Not just puffed up muscles but lean strong fibers and ligaments.
Encorperating addtional weihght to move things allong faster. Animal exercise and fitness drills and routines are a way of building functional strength , this is strength that not only looks good it has a functional purpose. You can use your body for all the enjoyment and games in life. Having functional fitness you can overcome obsticles that often face in day to day life. Or when trying out a new sport its easier to quickly adapt as the base and functionality of your body is already there.
If there is a tree you know that like a monkey, your could climb that or if you had to run or jump its easy to do. You could just need to quickly run to catch the train one day or jump out the way of a cyclist who has not been looking. Animal exersies take you back to realise that there are areas of your body that need to be improved, it is very humbling after months in the gym not to be able to walk like a gorilla or quickly becoming tired after stalking like a tiger. Arms feeling like jelly after only 20mins of being on all fours and feeling lght headed and dizzy as unable to spin around more than three times. Soon though with daily trainign your body and internal organs begin to pull in to shape like an animal your muscles feel lean and toned under your skin.
To even practice animal drills for 10 mins as a light routine at the start of the day will give you many beinifits , as it is balance stretching , power and your own body coordination.
Jump up and down like a mad chimp.
Stalk your prey and beat your chest like a great ape.
