At CleanWorkout, we are committed to helping people workout effectively and safely – that means ensuring proper posture. Like with any activity, correct form will help you get the most benefit from an activity and will minimize the risk of injury.
In this segment, our Team CW Contributor, Ashley, shows how to do proper Mountain Climbers.
Get yourself into plank position with your hands comfortably below your shoulders, and without locking your elbows. Keep your back straight and your bum down.
Ashley practices the movement before increasing the intensity, which is a good way to make sure you are comfortable in the activity. If Mountain Climbers are a new activity for you, start slowly. When done correctly, they will challenge your core strength, upper body strength, leg and glute strength, and your cardio performance. These are a great full body workout to use in your repertoire!
