Mountain climbers are a great full-body compound exercise that works the core, hip flexors, legs, arms, and shoulders. If you’re tired of performing basic mountain climbers, consider performing them at a faster pace, introducing ‘holds’ at timed intervals (i.e. holding the knee up every five seconds) or performing them from your elbows instead of your hands. You can also incorporate other exercises into the mix – i.e. after 10 seconds, perform five donkey kicks on either side and repeat for one minute.
