MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

Purpose: This exercise will help to strengthen your hip flexors (front of your hips) and your abdominal muscles, but through a fast movement pattern. This will help you to keep your posture and form, even while running fast.

How to do it:

* Start with your hands and feet on the ground.

* Quickly lift one knee up to your chest and return to the starting position.

* Repeat with the other leg and quickly alternate between left and right.

* See if you can do this for 20 seconds or 20 toe taps.

* Take a break and repeat again.
