    i just saw this even though you posted it 2 months ago.

     

    Bear crawls. Good for the core. Sort of like running like a monkey but without the "ooo ooo" sounds.

        He looks like he is having so much fun.  I think you might have to work on your tail-flicking technique to get the form right.

         

        This reminds me of the video of the guy from Japan who spent 8 years learning how to run like a monkey & holds the world record for a human running on all fours.  Take a look:
