Target your core, quads, glutes and deltoids with the mountain climber exercise.

Medicine Ball Mountain Climbers - Women's Health & Fitness

Step 1

•     Begin with hands on medicine ball, in half plank position with knees on the mat
•     Slowly raise body up to full plank position, weight evenly distributed between hands and feet
•     Ensure core is engaged and back is flat to avoid unwanted pressure on the lower back

Step 2

•     Bend knee up into chest
•     Return foot to mat
•     Repeat with alternate knee
•     Ensure back stays flat throughout. A relaxed core will cause the back to dip towards the mat which can cause lower back pain/pressure

* Repeat: 1–2 minutes
* Tempo: Alternate knee 1 x per second
