StairMaster Workout

Get Off the Treadmill! This 30-Minute Gym Sesh Actually Sculpts Your Butt

The treadmill is great and all, but if you really want to work that booty, the incline isn't gonna cut it. Let's maximize your gym time AND your backside with this 28-minute StairMaster routine from a personal trainer at Crunch Gym in San Francisco, Shannon McCourt. She created the "StairMaster Fat-Burning and Booty-Building Workout" just for you.

Repeat this circuit four times for a total of 28 minutes, taking a brief rest or sip of water between each set. Check out the video (below the workout instructions) to see Shannon show you how it's done. Side note: Shannon reminds you to "keep the weight in your heels!" to balance your body when you do any reverse steps on the StairMaster.
