Here is a circuit workout that you can do with a small or big set of stairs. I came up with this workout when we were having a huge scary storm in the area and I didn’t want to risk going out for my normal movement filled walk.
The exercises I do in this video are:
- Stair Push-ups
- Stair Bear Crawls
- Jumping jacks
- Step Down Squats
- Incline Push-ups
- Stair Lunges
- High Knees (with taps)
- Calf Raises
You can do this for as many rounds as you have time for or just do it a couple times through as a nice movement snack in the middle of your day.
I do 10 reps of most of the exercises but feel free to do fewer (or more) if that suits your fitness level right now. In the end, it is more beneficial to do fewer reps and more repetitions of this circuit.
And don’t worry if you can’t do the incline push-ups, that is pretty advanced. Stick to doing your push-ups on the stairs and remember that the higher the stair the easier the push-up.
