As Sylvester Stallone said “If you don’t have a mountain, build one and then climb it. And after you climb it, build another one; otherwise you start to flatline in your life.”
This month I thought I would share mountain climbers. What is it you might say? I am sure many of you are familiar with a plank. A mountain climber is basically a plant where you run on the spot.
It is really that simple and very cost effective as you can literally do it anywhere. It is a movement ideal for complete abdominal and cardio training. While sit-ups, crunches, planks and others strengthen, and tone muscles, mountain climber workouts burn fat, as well.
If you want to have an attractive flat stomach, focus on decreasing the fat that covers your tummy. This explosive bodyweight exercise is excellent to have in your daily exercise routine.
What’s it actually like? First, here’s how you do a mountain climber: you get into the plank position and, without letting your foot touch the ground, draw your knee up to your chest. Return it and repeat with the other knee. Do this over and over again as fast as you can in bursts of about 30 seconds or more. Keep your hips low, like you do for a plank.
It wears you out, it hurts your arms and it looks like the stupidest thing ever invented. As part of a circuit class, though, it fits in nicely with star jumps and burpees. Remember this is truly worth doing and will support your overall wellbeing.
Always ignite your power.
To your health,
P.S Every step you take is one to better health.
