High Intensity Cardio
You may remember these from your high school Phys Ed class – I sure do! Mountain Climbers are a fantastic way to burn lots of calories and increase your cardiovascular endurance. Keep them simple by starting with your hands on a step, bench or other stable surface, the higher the surface the easier the move. If you are an advanced exerciser; make it a challenge by performing these with your hands on a Bosu or medicine ball.
Do it Right:
- Begin in push up position, hands aligned under shoulders, toes on the floor hip distance apart, body in a straight line from top of head to toes, step the left foot in towards the chest, keeping left knee facing forward
- Jump up & switch feet in the air, bringing right foot toward the chest & left foot back to starting position
- Continue alternating the feet as fast as you can
