- Mountain Climbers develop muscular and cardiovascular fitness by increasing strength, flexibility and blood circulation. Mountain climbers require you to engage your upper arms muscles, as well as your core and your legs.
- Mountain climbers are dynamic, meaning they involve constant, smooth, and repetitive movement. They’re great for increasing joint flexibility. Every repetition involves flexion and extension of the hips and knees, which loosens up the joints and improves mobility. Improving hip and knee range of motion improves overall function, boosts athletic performance and lowers your susceptibility to injury.
- The contribution from your abdominals, obliques and muscles surrounding your hips, your torso maintains a neutral alignment during mountain climbers. These muscles isometrically contract, which means they contract to hold your torso in astable position.
