Sophia G 1x a day for 30days...Day1!!! 10-01-13
It was a lot easier to do the crab exercise as a kid, can you do it now? Practising the crab position will to stretch several areas of the upper and lower body improving flexibility and also strengthens muscles in the arms, legs and back, which are working to hold the position.
To complete the challenge, hold the crab position for 30 seconds. The back must be facing the ground, with the legs bent and raising the back off the floor, and arms extended straight backwards for support. Only the feet and hands are to be in contact with the floor.
Do the Crab Challenge rules
- You gotta get high with arms straight or just about.
- Hold for at least 30 seconds
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“I thought that this would be really easy at the start but I found it quite difficult to hold for thirty seconds! After a few days of practicing I could hold it for that long, but with some difficulty. Certainly a challenge!”

Katrina P Oh my goodness!!! This use to be so much easier as a kid.
Managed to hold the crab for just over a minute though. It was definitely a great stretch. Tension in my lower back is feeling relieved! :)
Sharkeira E I used to do this when I was a cheerleader in the back days. After a few long years, when I try to do it again,oh man! It's really difficult as I've never ever done this before! But that won't stop me from trying to do it! I'll practice this everyday and do it again!
Sudevan V Gonna try this later and its gonna be interesting. Could never hold the position for over 10 seconds
Alyona T I still cannot quite make 10 seconds on this one LOL I thought it would be easy, but I guess I really have not done it since I was a kid.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
