Weekly Wednesday Workout: Mountain Climbers

We are sticking with the abs this week!

httpv://youtu.be/nmwgirgXLYM

Yes, yes we are doing mountain climbers. I know we are all familiar with these, but now that I do them as a part of my ab routine I no longer hate them like I used to–I think–I like them? It is a tough exercise, but when you get used to it, it actually can be kinda fun (I can’t believe that I am admitting this–I used be a mountain climber hater, but I have been converted!!) Right now I do them as a part of a circuit and these usually last 30 seconds. Not to mention the arms get some work too!

Have you ever tried Mountain Climbers?

Nellie we are on the same wavelength today!!! I also have mountain climbers as part of my ab workout video I posted today. I know everyone hates these (except me and you maybe?) but they are so effective. I love any exercise that works multiple body parts at once. It’s like multi-tasking for your body. So glad you’ve come to like these. They are great for you!

Yup, always hated these when I was still able to do them, but do agree as much as I hated them, they really were a great exercise for my abs. Thanks as always for sharing!! 🙂

Mountain Climbers = The Devil. Period. I cannot stand doing these, BUT I know they literally work your whole body so it’s worth the pain.

I know–I hated them too until I was forced to do them so often, now its not so bad 🙂

Sounds good… but I think I’ll stick to my pole dancing class instead.

Yes, I am a mountain climber hater!

Those look so hardcore!! They look necessary, though. Now I’m going to Allie’s site because the “rumor” today is that you both discuss such awesome things.

Ugh…mountain climbers are right there with burpees for me: a fantastic exercise, but one that I dread. It’s good to know that some people actually like them…maybe someday I’ll get there too!

Reply
Nellie November 16, 2013 - 10:38 pm

not a fan of the burpee yet! but these have somehow grown on me.
