This floor workout simulates mountain climbing. Mountain climbers are imaginary mountain climbers. Running in plank position, you alternate knees to chest and back out. This silly-looking motion works many muscle groups, including your leg and abdominal muscles. Mountain climbers work your core, lower body, and cardio, unlike other leg exercises.
Start in a plank with your hands on the ground and your body straight. Bring one knee to your chest, maintaining your torso straight, and swap legs. For numerous reps, alternate legs swiftly." The exercise stabilizes your shoulders, arms, and chest as your core stabilizes the rest of your body. Stretching before and after mountain climbing reduces injuries and weariness.
This ultimate full-body workout tests strength and cardio. "The burpee is a full-body exercise that combines a squat, [a] push-up, and [a] jump," Sabat says. "To do a Burpee, start in a standing posture, squat down and place your hands on the ground, kick your feet back to a plank position, do a push-up, jump your feet back to your hands, and jump up explosively with your arms elevated overhead.
This exercise can also be modified if you can't execute a full burpee. Half-burpees (up-down or no-push-up) are possible. That way, you get the cardiovascular advantages and strength to do a full push-up without doing the push-ups.
Burpees require you to drop into the push-up position without falling. Avoid dropping down after this activity. Sabat thinks stomach and leg exercises won't help. It could even hurt. No way!
