Step up your mountain climbers by using a sturdy elevated surface. This exercise can be done anywhere, whether you’re at a park or in the weight room.
For the elevated mountain climber, start by placing your hands under your shoulders near the edge of the elevated surface. This will set you up for a high plank. Next, keep your arms straight, but elbows soft. Squeeze your core as you maintain a straight line from head to heels. Start “climbing” by alternating driving your knees into your core quickly. Avoid tucking your hips under. The movement should be isolated to your legs and core. To modify the mountain climber, move slower through the knee to core reps.
