The lizard crawl is included in the BASIC EXERCISES because it is, for a beginner, a reasonably challenging exercise. It is a very good exercise for developing wrist strength, and has other applications as well. Another good exercise for the wrists is Knuckle PUSHUPS.
There are detailed instructions on how to execute the Lizard Crawl below.

The student's limbs were in great pain - this was not a result of injury, but a result of the previous day's training.
So it had been for more than a year.
Training would last for hours, and then the next day would be spent in great pain, as his limbs struggled to recover and to grow.

And he found that the years of pain had brought him strange gifts - if he was injured, his body healed much faster than that of an ordinary man. And he did not age as other men did.
