I've been really into running (and walking) stairs lately, but it can get a little tedious so I found a way to switch it up while still doing the stairs. All you have to do is add Skater Steps into your workout. Here's how:
- Stand facing stairs.
- Start by stepping your right foot onto the right edge side of first step.
- Then push off of your right foot and step onto your left foot to the left edge side of next step. You should feel like you are speed skating.
- Now keep alternating sides all the way up the stairs.
To see how I incorporate skater steps into my own stair workout, just
*Use at least one or two flights of stairs, or more if you're up for the challenge.
|00:00-05:00||Walk up and down to warm up|
|05:00-07:00||Run up and down|
|07:00-10:00||Skater steps up and run down|
|10:00-12:00||Run up and down|
|12:00-15:00||Skater steps up and run down|
|15:00-20:00||Walk up and down to cool down|
Skater Steps are a great addition because they target the outside of the leg and hip, ensuring that you get a fuller workout since stairs tend to work the front and back of your legs. Try it next time you climb the stairs!
