About This Article
Exercising on stairs is a great way to get some cardio in while strengthening your legs and glutes. To start, walk up and down the stairs for 5 to 10 minutes to get your heart rate up. Once you’re warmed up, try sprinting for a short time then walking for a short time to build up your endurance. You can also try stair hops by planting both feet on 1 stair, bending your knees slightly, and hopping up to the next stair. If you want to strengthen your legs, do some stair lunges. Simply step your right foot up 2 or 3 stairs and push yourself up until your left leg comes to meet your right leg on the step. You can do this exercise 10 times per leg. Whatever exercises you choose to do, make sure to go slow so you don’t injure yourself. To learn how to make a fitness plan that includes stairs, read on!
