If workout equipment is hard to find, you can always make do with what you’ve got. Not only will this quick stair workout burn a ton of calories, it will also give those legs and glutes an INSANE workout.
Let’s get clear on some of the workout terms.
- Singles: Use every step. Usually jogging or walking.
- Doubles: Use every second step, skipping one.
- Triples: Use every third step. These will be done in a lunging motion.
Next rule: ALWAYS use singles on the way down. Skipping them will cause impact, imbalances, and frankly, it’s just dangerous. This workout will challenge you physically, and your legs will get a little wobbly.
Alright, let’s get to it!
