For the first month of Fit Challenge 2015, I am hosting Mountain Climbers. I wanted to write a quick description of what they are and share a video of how to do them.
Mountain Climbers are a great full body workout that not only strengthen your core, butt, hips and thighs, but also provide cardiovascular benefit. As you do them, you will feel your heart rate increase rapidly.
To perform the exercise, follow these steps:
- Assume a plank position with your hands at shoulder width.
- Thrust your right leg forward to just under your chest.
- Return your right leg to full extension and repeat with the left leg.
- Continue alternating for each repetition.
