Mountain Climbers

This is one of my favorite exercises for my abs and one that I notice quick results with the most. Get in plank position and then bring your right leg to your left shoulder, while still holding your body up. Then, put it back down. Repeat on the left side with the left leg, bringing it to your right shoulder.

Then put it back down on the floor while you stay up in plank. Keep doing this and go faster as you can. It should seem like your climbing by alternating one foot with the other, though I admit it feels funny doing so on the floor. These are actually pretty easy to do if you can do plank. Start out with 10 lifts on each side and then increase it to as many as you can, working up to doing these for 1 minute each day.
