Are you looking for an intense cardio exercise you can do anywhere? Do you need to torch body fat? Let me introduce you to Mountain Climbers. Many of you may already know this exercise and do need an introduction.
Here is how you do a Mountain Climber:
Begin in a Push-Up position, with your weight supported by your hands and toes. Flexing the knee and hip, bring one leg until the knee is approximately under the hip. This will be your starting position. Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, extending the bent leg until the leg is straight and supported by the toe, and bringing the other foot up with the hip and knee flexed. Repeat in an alternating fashion for the time allotted. This exercise can easily be modified. You can alternate as slow as you want or do it against the wall if you are a beginner, or for more of a challenge, go as fast as you can! Mountain Climbers are a great full body cardio workout, perfect for fat loss!
I personally enjoy doing Mountain Climbers either for 4 minutes (20 second sets as fast as I can with a 10 second rest between each set for 8 intervals) or doing as many as I can until failure. I can set a mat up anywhere and have a blast! In fact, since the exercise is pretty intense, a regular yoga mat will not do. Protect your wrists with an extra thick, non-slip exercise mat.
