Instructions: How To

This intense cardio and core exercise uses a BOSU balance trainer to amplify the challenge of traditional mountain climbers. The added instability requires greater core engagement and balance, enhancing cardiovascular fitness and muscle endurance.

  1. Position your palms on the outside of the Balance Trainer, flat surface up, to support your bodyweight.
  2. Extend your right knee and hip to support your weight on your hands and your right toes.
  3. Flex the left knee to position your thigh under your chest with your left foot flat on the ground.
  4. Begin by exploding your left leg back while simultaneously bringing your right leg under your chest allowing your hips to flex upward.
  5. Return back to the starting position and repeat.
