MOUNTAIN CLIMBER

This move is a great full-body exercise that hits most of the muscles in your body, making it a huge calorie burner. Great for doing on holidays or when you can’t get to the gym, it can be performed anywhere, as all you need is some space and your own bodyweight. It will improve both your strength and cardio fitness, while also improving flexibility, blood circulation and overall conditioning.

 

HOW TO DO IT

Begin in a high push-up position with your weight supported by your hands, and up on your toes.

Keeping a straight back, drive one leg towards your body, by bringing your knee in towards your hip. Bring it in as far as you can, while keeping your lower back in a neutral position.

Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, straightening your bent leg and resting it on your toes, while bringing your other knee in towards your hips.

Repeat in an alternating fashion for 30-60 seconds.
