AG walks

Recommended Posts

Philip Papandrea

Hi all,

I tried these in the WOD today and i'm just not getting anywhere(literally). Just getting into the position and keeping my hips elevated causes tremendous cramps in my triceps. When I try to move, my hips start sagging and i don't move very far. I'm doing these on a wood floor with cardboard. Is there an easier substitute for this move? The only thing I could think of doing was stay in place and shift my weight from hand to hand. My triceps were burning after this. Any help would be appreciated.

If the Ag Walks are currently too demanding, Crab Walks would be an excellent substitution. To perform a Crab Walk begin from the Ag Walk position in the video and then bend your legs until your feet are directly under your knees. Another key item to focus on during the Crab Walks is to elevate your hips until they are level with your shoulders; although this may be a struggle at first.

Yours in Fitness,

Phillip, a carpet square would work well on wood floor.

The first version of ag walks I teach is with the feet going forward and the hands pushing away from the feet. It's like a pushup position in reverse.

I will try the carpet when I'm ready to progress. I tried the crab walks today and they will be a challenging but very doable substitution for the AG walks especially when the hips are elevated. When I let the hips sag they were way too easy.When I elevated the hips I really felt the same muscles work as in the start position of the AG walks but I could actually move around now. Thanks for the suggestions.

Holy smokes, 16 wheels? That thing should be able to take some punishment!  ;)  :D

Be prepared for some very dirty hands. I think I should use a duster cloth and clean as I go.
