As always, we find many different alternatives to the timeless precor stair climber or mountain climber exercise that will permit us to work at several intensities, request more of the portions of the body and also challenge the body with movements that are different from those already known. Declined climber: with raised feet in a chair, bench or other surface, we perform the movement of the climber at a slower pace so as not to shed stability. This variant accentuates the work of shoulders and arms to be greater part of the body weight on this region.
Climber crossed: to work more oblique abdominals we can perform this variant in which, the knee is not directed to the elbow on its same side but on the opposite side. The body should be aligned from head to toe, for which it is crucial not to break the waist and keep the abdomen contracted throughout the exercise.
