5 Mountain Climber Variations for a Great Core Workout

When I say bodyweight abdominal workout you are probably thinking of sit-ups or crunches. These are some of the old school exercises that some people still use. I prefer planks or mountain climbers. Mountain climbers can be done at any level depending on which version you use. Many of the Turbulence Training workouts use the mountain climber exercise.

5 Mountain Climber Variations

Here are 5 variations from easiest (#1) to hardest (#5). If you are a beginner make sure you have numbers 1 and 2 down first before you start moving to the more difficult versions.

  1. regular mountain climber
  2. cross body mountain climber 0:34
  3. mountain climbers with stability ball or cross body mountain climbers with stability ball 0:55
  4. cross body mountain climbers on a  stability ball 1:37
  5. mountain climbers with hands on the bench and feet on the ball 2:00

Here is Chris Lopez (Certified Turbulence Trainer) to demonstrate the mountain climber variations.
