Mountain Climber

Mountain Climbers

Mountain Climbers: This push up-like exercise will really crank up the heat! Try to bring your knees as far up to your chest as you can (without kicking yourself!), and remember that the faster you go, the more you will sweat! Click here for instructions.
  • Beginner: 3 sets of 10-20 per side
  • Advanced: 3 sets of 20-40 per side (or as many as you can for 60 seconds)
  • Why? This move does it all and will get your heart rate up for a great cardio burst.

Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Get in a push up position. Your body should be in a straight, diagonal line from your head to your toes. 
Step 2: Raise your right knee toward your chest.
Step 3: Return to starting position and repeat with left leg. That’s one rep.
Step 4: Alternate legs quickly for 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner):Decrease your speed and range of motion.
