Staircase workout

Even if you don’t have any equipment there’s still some really effective ways to workout just using what’s available in your house.

This workout can be done by just using your stairs.

Try It….it’s tougher than you think!

Stair Climb |Begin at the bottom of the staircase.
Climb up the stairs, then back down — that’s one lap.
Do 3 laps.

Push Ups | Start in a high plank position (arms straight) with your feet on the floor and your arms on either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd step, depending on how difficult you want to make it? Lower your chest towards the step, then back to start position. Reps: 5 – 10. To make it more difficult, reverse the position and put your feet on 1 of the steps and your arms on the floor, then begin your push ups.

Bulgarian Split Squat | Stand a few feet away from the bottom of your staircase, facing away.
Root your left foot into the ground and lift your right leg and place it on the second step (or wherever feels comfortable for your hip mobility).
Bend your left leg to 90 degrees, making sure that your knee doesn’t extend past your toes.
Keep your weight in your left leg and return to standing. If you struggle to return to standing, use the staircase rail for a little extra support.
