It’s Day SIX of the one exercise a day challenge! Today’s exercise is: MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS. What’s cool about the mountain climber? I’m glad you asked… This awesome exercise works nearly ALL of the muscles in your CORE: shoulders, abdominals, glutes, quads, etc. etc. PLUS, it is a great way to get your heartrate up! Watch today’s training video, then complete your workout as recommended below!
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
We’re keeping it REAL simple today with a total of 100 mountain climbers! As I mentioned in the video, each time a knee comes forward, that’s counted as one repetition. That means you’ll complete a total of 50 on each side 👏😁🔥
Instead of completing this with your hands on the floor, lean against a stable surface, such as the armrest of a couch or a wall. If going fast seems like a bit too much, take it as slowly as you need to! Your safety comes first, always ❤️
MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING
If you’re a workout veteran, 100 repetitions may be a warmup for you. You may have noticed in the video that I switched up the TYPE of mountain climber by drawing my knees in different directions:
- Knee toward the center of my chest
- Knee toward the same elbow (i.e. left knee, left elbow, or right knee, right elbow)
- Knee toward the opposite elbow
Complete one round of each version. That’s THREE rounds of 100 mountain climbers for a grand total of 300 ✌️🤠
