A few basic steps to perform mountain climber exercise
It is really hard to find exercises that do not consume too much time and have the ability to melt down the fat. Mostly, people do not find such exercise in reality and start to think that it is not possible to reduce our tummy size without going to the gym. The reality is somewhat different. Exercises that get advertised on television actually focus on the income of the exercise equipment manufacturer. Therefore, the exercises told on television look attractive but are not result oriented. If you are really looking for something that can help you lose your tummy then there is nothing better than a mountain climber exercise. No doubt that it is tough to perform the exercise but it shows you the results within a very short time period.
The most important thing to remember while doing the mountain climber is to ensure angle perfection. The angle at which your legs are moving actually give you the results. If you are working hard but are making wrong angles with other parts of the body then unfortunately all the efforts you do will go in vain. Thus, it is important to keep a perfect posture while performing the mountain climber. Here are a few steps given in series that will help you to maintain a nice posture to help you lose your weight and tummy.
Step 1 – lie down with your face directed towards the floor
Step 2 – straighten your arms and touch the knees to the ground
Step 3 – lift yourself with the help of your hands such that your hands come direct under your chest but keep them a bit wider than the shoulders
Step 4 – keep the legs in the stretched manner and they must be in line with the remaining body (do not tend to make a gap between the knees). You can follow any similar position in which you feel comfortable
Step 5 - Stretch your right leg and move the right one towards your right hand while bending by the right knee. The posture is similar to the one you make while climbing a tree or a mountain
Step 6 – move the right leg back to its original position and repeat the step 5 with left leg
Step 7 – after various repetitions, place your hands on a step above the ground. This will make the exercise a bit more tough
Step 8 – perform the exercise for at least three times with 12 to 15 repetitions in each set.
This exercise is surely quite hard to be performed and has a direct effect on the abdominal and the leg muscles. It makes your shoulders and arms strong and also gives strength to the limbs. Therefore, mountain climber exercise gives you multiple benefits that are surely difficult to be gained through any other exercise. The best part of the exercise is that you do not need any of the equipment. All you need is high spirit and motivation to gain faster results from the exercise.
