How to play:

Participants lay stomach down on the floor, they raise their upper bodies off the ground by placing their hands under their chest and extending their arms. From this they should resemble a seal (or be in the Cobra position if you are familiar with yoga). 

Holding this position and using only their arms to propel themselves, players race each other to the finishing line. This game can be best played indoors on a smooth floor, or on ice if you want authenticity, but also good on the beach.
