Mountain climbers train both strength and fitness. The position you hold during the exercise also means that you exercise balance and support muscles, as well as improve coordination.
Sådan gør du
Starting position is similar to a push up, only your hands and toes touch the floor. Keep your body straight and tighten your core and arms.
Insert one knee towards the chest, while the other leg stays stretched. Try to get your leg up as far as possible.
Switch legs either in a slow motion or with an explosive jump to increase the effect on cardio.

Avoid swaying in the back and avoid working with hunchback. The body should be kept as tight as possible throughout the exercise. Be sure to keep your hips in the correct position so that you also avoid to keep your butt too high against the ceiling. Make sure the abdominal muscles are connected to avoid twisting the hip.
