How to do a mountain climber?

So you hate burpees, join the club! But did you know that a burpee isn’t the only compound exercise that targets multiple muscle groups and works up a sweat. Mountain climbers are a great core exercise, which also targets your shoulders, back, hips, quads and glutes. Below we have advice on how to do a rock climber, the benefits of the exercise, and the modifications you can try.

Before you dig out your hiking boots, you don’t have to be near a mountain to reap the benefits of this practice. Instead, all you need is an exercise mat (we have the best yoga mats which also serve as exercise mats here), and your body weight. Mountaineers are suitable for all abilities and we’ve found some of the best adaptations for complete beginners below.
