Go Climb a Mountain!

Go  Climb a Mountain!

Especially if you are doing circuit training, adding the “mountain climber” to your routine is a great way to pump up the intensity. This exercise is a great overall body shaper and also adds a boost of cardio to your circuit. Here’s what you need to do:  


  • Get into a pushup position with arms straight and hands under your shoulders.
  • Lift right leg and walk it forward so it is bent under your chest. (Left leg remains behind you.)
  • Push with your legs to switch foot positions, bringing your left leg forward and right leg behind you. 
  • Continue alternating for one minute or for as many reps as possible, while maintaining form.


If you’re a beginner, you may have a little trouble with balance and strength.But don’t give up! Start slowly and perform as many climbs as you can. Before you know it, you’ll be climbing the whole mountain!  


In order to avoid risk of injury, please seek advice directly from your physician, especially if you have existing medical issues, before beginning any exercise or nutritional program. Also, be sure to stretch after exercise to avoid muscle and joint tightness.
