Before you ask us what to choose – slow climbers or fast climbers – we have a question for you. What is your purpose for doing this exercise? This question will solve the mystery, and only then will you be able to find the perfect climber for you!
So let’s not assume anything! Let’s see step by step what makes the climber – the favorite choice of herbalists?
Why go for climbers?
Well, if you are a HIIT fan, you must know the importance of climbers. Basically, this is again a compound exercise that targets most parts of your body.
If we talk about the major muscles, it caters to your core (abs and obliques), glutes, thighs, and arms. And if you talk about smaller muscle groups, it works on your whole body. What makes this exercise even better is that it’s a mix of cardio and muscle training. You can spin it any way you want, just working on your intensity.
But to target all those muscles, you need to know how to do them right! Here are the steps that will help you:
1. First, get into a high plank position. Keep your back straight, your butt out, and your core tight. Make sure your shoulders are right above your wrists.
2. Move your right leg towards your chest and return to the starting position. So, you need to make a climbing move. Keep alternating between legs… et voila!
You learned to do the climber.
So, as you’ve learned the move now, let’s assess your schedule and advise you accordingly.
Want to gain firmer abs? Slow climbers are all you need!
All good! So it looks like you want to squeeze your belly. Great! For this girl, you have to opt for slow climbers. When alternating legs, you need to make sure your belly doesn’t hang down. In fact, he should be bent over and his knee should come up to his chest.
When the knee is out there, hold it for a second or two and bring the alternate knee forward. Just make sure there are no jumps. Feel the stretch and keep your core tight at all times.
If you are doing slow climbs, we recommend doing circuits. Then you can do a 50 second circuit, take a 10 second break and then repeat. 10 of those rounds are all you need to tighten your belly.

Want to lose belly fat fast? Fast climbers are all you need
On the other hand, for those who want to lose that extra belly fat first, this climbers cardio version is the best. Yes, we mean fast climbers. This will include quickly switching legs with a jump.
The general rule of thumb of keeping your core tight will remain the same. You should also try to bring your knee as close to your chest as possible. Don’t forget to keep breathing, to keep the rhythm.
For fast climbers, you can opt for both – a circuit or reps. If you’re doing a circuit, keep it the same – 50 seconds of climbers, 10 seconds of rest, then repeat. Do a minimum of 7 sets and a maximum of 10. Or you can do 150 climbers with each leg and do 7 rounds.
So, we just revealed the secret to the curvy belly. You choose what suits you best, in sync with your 2022 fitness goal!
