Ultimate Stair Climbing Workout

Ultimate Stair Climbing Workout
Stair climbing is a supercharged workout that targets the hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes - and the best part is that it is free; and free is good!

Here are a few tips before you get started:
  • Pay attention to the signals yours body gives. If your knees hurt, then stop.

  • If you feel dizzy or weak, then stop and sit down.

  • Go slowly until you become accustomed to the workout.

  • Wear lightweight sneakers.

  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Workout Program:
  • Begin by stretching for 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Gently walk up and down the staircase. Do at least 2 reps (up, down, up, down). Use the handrail for balance, if needed.

  • Jog up and down the staircase. Do at least 2 reps. For a more advanced technique, try skipping steps going up, and jogging back down. Remember to work at a comfortable pace. There are no competitions here. This is your own personal journey.

  • Next, side-step it all the way up and walk back down.

  • Repeat, leading with your other side.

  • Jog up and down the staircase. Do at least 2 reps. For a more advanced technique, try skipping steps going up, and jogging back down.

  • With two feet together, jump up onto each step, and then walk back down.

  • Gently walk up and down the staircase. Do at least 2 reps (up, down, up, down). Use the handrail for balance, if needed.

  • Finally, end by giving yourself a good all over body stretch. Really take your time with these. Try holding each stretch for at least 30 seconds and remember to breathe.
