Mountain climbers always seem to be on top 10 lists of exercises because, well, they get the job done. That fast-paced motion is already hard on the most basic level, making you sweat bullets as you bring your knees to your chest while simultaneously holding your body steady in a plank. But just wait until you see the amped-up version.
Kirsty Godso, a Nike master trainer, recently shared a pyramid workout that's so intense even watching it will make you go bug-eyed. Instead of doing a normal mountain climber, you're literally mid-air half the time as you do a non-stop mix of climbs and jumps. "Try this heart raiser if you want to throw some sauce into your next workout," she writes. And sauce is right: This move is spicy.
Here's how to do the pyramid exercise, according to Godso.
