Coach's Tips

It's a whole-body cardio where you keep running with your knees up to your chest. From core and abdominal target to effective calorie burn, it's a perfect workout!

How to Mountain Climber

Starting Position

1. Begin in a high plank position, with your feet hip-width apart and your hands directly under your shoulders.

2. Make sure your body is in a straight line from shoulders to toes.

3. Engage your core and glutes to keep your body stable.

Proper Form

1. Lift your right foot off the ground and bring your knee towards your chest.

2. Lower your right knee back to the starting position and repeat with your left leg.

3. Continue alternating your legs for a total of 10-15 reps.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you lift your legs and inhale as you lower them back to the starting position.

2. Maintain a steady breath throughout the exercise.


1. Keep your core and glutes engaged throughout the exercise to avoid straining your lower back.

2. Avoid letting your hips sway or dip too low.

3. Make sure to keep your neck and spine in a neutral position.
