Preparing for the exercise
Before doing the crocodile exercise, our muscles and ligaments require compulsory preparation. If you do it after training, you can skip the warm-up again. Otherwise, it is imperative to warm up the muscles and prepare the body for the load. To do this, you should perform a small set of simple exercises. You can remember the classic warm-up to stretch the joints a little and warm up the muscles.
An example of a light warm-up:
For each exercise, 10 repetitions.
After warming up, you can move on to the exercise itself. For convenience, you will need a gym mat.
Starting position: lying on your stomach, legs together, toes are taut, hands are straight along the head or are in the "lock" position behind the head (while the elbows should look to the sides).
Take a deep breath and lift the chest area off the floor as high as possible. Look and hands are directed straight ahead (if your hands are in the "lock" position behind your head, then your elbows should still look to the sides). Then lift your straight legs off the floor as far as your body allows. Hold this position for a couple of seconds. Return to starting position.
During the exercise, keep breathing evenly, approximately 3-5 breaths per set. In total, you need to do at least 6 reps.
