How to Do Side-to-Side One-Leg Mountain Climbers
- Start with a traditional push up position with your hands planted firmly on the floor.
- Jump to the side, landing one foot with your toes touching the ground. Your other foot must be bent without touching the floor. For instance, if you jump to your right, you should land with your right foot; your left foot should be bent without touching the floor. Take note: Try to keep your legs close together to help maintain your balance.
- Alternate this move with your other foot and do it again.
- Repeat this exercise within 10 to 15 seconds or for as long as you can.
