Crossbody Climbers Overview

Crossbody climbers are an effective exercise that targets your entire abdominal region. It also plays a critical role in strengthening your core muscles. It engages your obliques and hip flexors to a maximum level. It also strengthens your hamstrings and glutes.

The exercise also stabilizes your triceps and biceps. Your upper body strength will get much better with the help of crossbody climbers. You do not need any equipment to do the exercise. It is an advanced version of a regular mountain climber.

It’s important to do the exercise in a controlled and slow motion, unlike a mountain climber. 

How to Do It

  1. Come to a high plank position with your entire body in one straight line.
  2. Your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
  3. Your core should be tight and engaged throughout the exercise.
  4. Now bring your one knee forward and touch it to the opposite side.
  5. Take it back and at the same time bring the other knee forward to touch the opposite side.

Crossbody Climber Tips

  1. Be mindful of keeping your body in a straight line throughout the exercise.
  2. Your hips should not be bouncing, and your back should be in a straight line.
  3. Remember to breathe throughout the exercise.

Healthier and Happier Life is One Step Away.
