Mountain climbers are an extremely efficient compound exercise. They are a great way to get some cardio in during (or after) your session as well as targeting the core, hip flexors, legs, arms and the shoulder area. In addition to developing the core, this full-body workout can also reduce belly fat and increase overall cardio endurance.
There are many variations of the mountain climber exercise. You can perform mountain climbers at a fast pace (for fat burn), place a hold on the knee raise (for more of a core focus), or perform them from your elbows instead of hands, at an incline, etc.
The great thing about mountain climbers is that the exercise requires no special equipment and can be done almost anywhere, within reason of course!
