Animal Form Drills

More excellent body weight conditioning exercises from some Brazilian jujitsu guys mimicking the motion and gait of animals. I've done something similar to the "spider" in my own routine sometimes. All of them look interesting and I think would be fun to do. At the very least it will make your body explore a whole new range of movement.

Exercise wisely though. If you're willing to explore them, some moves look more challenging than others, requiring a lot more flexibility. Take careful note of the descriptions on the video on how to perform them for proper form (it enhances the benefits and lessens the chances for injury). The "triple S" reminders of stretch first, then keep it slow and gradual and  sip plenty of water afterwards still apply!
