Spider crawl exercise is one of the best body weight exercises around. Spider crawl works the entire body in a way like none other exercise. This is absolutely one of my favorites to shred the entire body and to get that lean tight look.
How to do a Spider Crawl:
Get in a normal push-up position. Lower your body down until your nose and your pelvis region just barely touches the ground. Begin to crawl across the floor while keeping your nose and pelvis just barely off the ground. You should look like a spider crawling across the floor. When you get to the other side turn around and go back the other way or you can crawl backwards until you get to your starting position. Repeat this exercise as many times as you dare!

Spider crawl exercise works the entire body
Target Repetitions for Muscle Growth: 3-4 reps across the room
Why a Spider Crawl works:
The reason spider crawl exercise works so well is because you are not touching the ground with your body. All weight is distributed to your feet and hands. But by placing your body so close to the ground it makes it more difficult to hold yourself up.
Tips: The critical component for spider crawl exercise is to keep your nose and your pelvis close to the ground without touching it.
Important!: Breathe in and out slowly throughout this exercise.
