#28: Challenge of the week: Mountain climber

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Mountain Climber
It is amazing. I hear myself thinking the same thing week by week: This is one of my favorite exercises. And it is. And the same goes for many of the other exercises in these challenges. I love them, and I love them all. Well, maybe not all, but a lot of them. With the mountain climber, I do not only like the exercise, I also like the name. People who know me better know that I am not too happy with heights, but I do like the idea of climbing a lot. So yeah, the name appeals to me…

level 1: 70 reps / 7 minutes
level 2: 140 reps / 14 minutes
level 3: 210 reps / 21 minutes
level 4: 280 reps / 28 minutes
