No Equipment Training, part 1. Mountain Climbers
It’s that time of year where going for a run gets a bit less appealing when the wind and rain get going.
So we’re going to start a series of bodyweight exercises that you can do at home which will turbocharge your cardiovascular system and give you a nice strength endurance workout too.
This is my favourite when I’m pressed for time. Mountain climbers – a great exercise that works your shoulders, core and cardio endurance.
A video is worth a thousand pictures so here’s a clip of me doing mountain climbers in the summer 🙂
The key points are:
- Keep your back flat and level at all times
- Bring the knee up past the elbow
- Hold and pause, then repeat!
