Side Climber

WAC Women’s & Coed Fitness Manager Maureen Eggers demonstrates the Side Climber, a twist on the traditional mountain climber that will give you a cardio kick while working your core.


Place hands under shoulders on a bench, box or step and walk feet backward into plank position.


Jump knees forward while rotating 90 degrees to left side of the body.

Jump back into plank position.


Repeat, this time bringing your knees to the right side.

Do as many repetitions as you can in one minute. Focus on range of motion and speed.
