How To Do A Knee Touch Mountain Climber

Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Get into a push up position; laying face down on the floor with your arms fully extended underneath you, hands directly under your shoulders. Come up onto your toes so that your body is in a straight line from head to toe.
  2. Squeezing your core, drive one leg in so your knee heads towards your chest. Once it’s at chest level take your opposite hand and tap your knee.
  3. Return hands and legs to starting position whistle the opposite hands and legs drive towards one another.
  4. Focus on keeping the body as still as possible, in a rigid plank position.


Struggling to complete this movement? Step it down a notch, remove the knee touch and try mountain climbers instead.
