Indoor Stair Workout

It's Getting Hot in Here! 30-Minute Total-Body Indoor Stair Workout

If piles and piles of snow or crazy-cold temps are preventing you from getting your workout in, it's time to step it up — literally! Most people have access to something that's just as good as a treadmill and weight room — the stairs. Use a set in your home, your office, or at your local park. Crank up your favorite workout playlist, and keep an eye on the clock, repeating this six-minute circuit five times through for a 30-minute total-body workout.

Time Move
1 minute Run up and down the stairs
1 minute Triceps dips: rest your hands on the second or third step
1 minute Forward lunges: alternate between stepping the right foot on the first step, and then the left; make it harder by doing bicep curls with a set of dumbbells
1 minute Double leg jumps: starting on the ground, jump both feet onto the first step, then jump back to the ground
1 minute Push-ups: elevate both feet on the first, second, or third step; if this is too difficult, elevate your hands instead
1 minute Side squats: elevate your right foot on the first step for 30 seconds, then repeat on the left side for 30 seconds; make it more challenging by doing overhead shoulder presses with a set of dumbbells

Yes! I love seeing workouts like this - you can't say you have no time or no equipment to workout when you have a workout like this. One set of stairs and you get one good workout! Thanks for this!
