Mountain Climbers Develop Hips, Core And More

Use the mountain climber exercise to develop your hips and core which will improve your speed and power. You will be a better athlete.

It is one of the best and toughest exercises out there. Challenge yourself and do this exercise full speed for 3 sets of 25 repetitions (each leg).

It is a compound exercise in that it works the calves, quadriceps, glutes, back, chest, triceps, abdominals and shoulders. You will need high levels of core strength to do this exercise the right way for each set.

Do the mountain climber this way:

From a push-up position, keep your back flat (do not let your back bow) and pump your legs as fast as possible like you are running in place. Don't scrape the ground with your shoes as they run forward. And, don't let your glutes "sag to the ground" when you are fatigued.

There it is! Try it the next time you work out!
