Mt. Climbers (Lv 2)

Exercise Instructions

Start on your hands and toes, in a push up position.
Hold this position and bring one knee up as far underneath your body and towards your chest as you can. At the top of the motion, let your foot tap the ground briefly
Push off from the ground with both feet simultaneously, switching the positions of your legs so that the opposite foot is now tapping the ground under your body while the other leg is extended.
Keep the motion (the switching of foot positions) continuous. The shorter the time between the alternating leg positions, (extended and tapping) the harder the exercise.
Continue to alternate legs without dropping out of the push up position for a set period of time or a set number of repetitions.
