Add this exercise to your routine in order to strengthen your core and improve your cardio-vascular endurance. You will also feel this in your upper body, due to the isometric contraction used to hold your body in place. Mountain climbers are an effective exercise that can provide great results and add variety to your core strengthening routine.
Begin in a push-up position. Keeping your hands on the ground throughout, jump one leg forward into a deep lunge (only tapping your toes to the ground in this forward lunge position). Without pausing, jump the other leg forward as the first leg returns to the starting position, as if you are running stairs horizontally. Remember to keep your abs tight during the entire exercise and make an effort not to allow your bum to bob up and down as you switch legs. The only body part that should be moving are your legs. Do 25 reps on each leg.
