Y’all! If lower belly fat is coming in the way of your desire for perfectly-sculpted abs, then you must try mountain climbers. This one move is a mix of cardio and muscle training and that’s why it has the power to blast that fat in no time. Plus, it will also help in sculpting your booty and thigh muscles. All in all, this is that one exercise that you all have been waiting for. 

But first, learn to ace the mountain climber
If you are a HIIT fanatic then you are definitely going to love this move. This how you can do it:

1. Firstly, go in a high plank position. Keep your back straight, butt out, and core tight. Ensure that your shoulders are right above your wrists.

2. Now move your right leg towards your chest and then return to the starting position. Like this you need to do a climbing motion. Keep alternating between legs quickly… et voila! You’ve learnt to do the mountain climber.

Do 100 reps from each leg and 4 such sets to burn that belly fat away.

Here are a few things you must keep in mind while doing mountain climbers

  • The more speed you add, the flatter your tummy will be. 
  • Keeping your core is a must during this exercise. This will allow better contraction of your abs and hence better results. 
  • Once your knee reaches your chest level, try to move it towards your wrist to enhance the impact.  
  • If you have lower back issues then please consult a physician before doing this exercise. 

This is why mountain climbers are a must
Well, there are many reasons that make mountain climber the perfect exercise for weight loss and flat abs. Some of them being: 

1. Mountain climbers are a part of HIIT training and don’t impact your joints and knees negatively.

2. They work both as cardio and muscle endurance exercises at the same time.


Keep an idea of your risk of weight-related issues.

Check BMI

3. They work on multiple body parts like arms, back, shoulder, core, glutes, and legs simultaneously.

4. They also help in improving your stamina and performance just like other HIIT exercises.
