One of the things we love most about summer is getting to exercise outside. The fresh air and sunshine help with our mental and emotional health, and it's also just more fun to get out of the gym and switch things up.
This summer, we're incorporating more stair training into our weekly workout regimen. Stairs are great because you can essentially find them anywhere--at parks, at schools, and even at your apartment complex. Read more about the benefits of stair runs and then try a few of these workouts below!
Stair Tabata Workout
We've been trying out Tabata this summer, and we love this quick and fiery stair Tabata workout. Remember that the goal is to go as hard as you can during the 20-second sprints, so make sure to sprint during the climbs and work up that sweat. Your legs will only get stronger!
Stair Pyramid Workout
Do you prefer to incorporate some bodyweight exercises into your routine? Try this stair pyramid workout, using the bottom step as a step platform.
Stair HIIT Workout
If you've been around for a while, you know we're also big fans of HIIT. It's similar to Tabata (going as fast as you can, then resting), but just stretched out a bit longer. And it sometimes focuses on reps rather than time. We've also created this specific workout to include a nice mix of high-impact exercises and cardio.
