The Lunch Time Stair Climb, Stair Climbing Workout

Jessica Landry, @JessgynNP on Twitter, tweeted a workout request: “@BonniePfiester send a good stair routine…something quick like can do in lunch hour wo leaving building.” So, I did. I tried it. It made me sweat like a pig and here it is!

I had 8 flights of stairs to do this workout but it can be totally modified to meet your needs. Estimated time: 20-30 minutes depending on your fitness level. Can be repeated for lengthier workout. Add dumbbells to boost difficulty. Have FUN! 🙂

1. Singles – Light Jog Up Stairs

2. Doubles – skipping 1 step, pushing with heels
