Crab (posture)

Professional wrestler Bray Wyatt's signature "spider walk'"

The Crab is the name given to a body position sometimes seen in basic gymnastics, yoga, and breakdancing. The body is supinated so that the back turns to the ground, the legs are bent like sitting in a chair, and the arms extend straight backward. Only the feet and hands touch the ground, and the torso is held parallel with the ground. The position's name originates from that of a crab.[1]

The position is said to strengthen the arms, legs and back.[2]
