Staircase workout

Staircase workout - new level of fitness and health

Perfect, if you:

  • want to start working out but don't want to join a gym
  • train regularly but feel unsatisfied with your lower body
  • need to improve your lower body leg strength & power 
  • desire a challenge, physically, mentally, cardiovascularly

yes, working out including running stairs supports our mental health!


Staircase running, jumping, walking, crawling

yes, you read correctly: staircase running & crawling.

Don't worry, EVERYONE (as long as s/he can walk), regardless of fitness level, can do some form of this workout.

If you are a beginner, all you need is 3 minutes (2-3 times per week) to start.

Increase your workout slowly, meaning in week 3, you'll progress to 5 minutes (2-3 times per week), in week 5 you'll start staircase running for 7 minutes (2-3 times a week), and so on.

Listen to your body, listen to your joints. If you need longer to recover or longer to get used to the exercises then progress even slower. Your health always takes priority but know 

walking stairs strengthens our knees and is good for our joints!

But even if you are well-trained, allow your body and especially your joints, if you are new to this type of training, sufficient amount of time to get used to these exercises, meaning, don't overdue it. 

And don't neglect to warm up, cool-down, stretch and take water breaks as needed.

These are important components of a solid workout.

Listen to your body, take rest when needed and don't forget to have fun.

And don't worry, in these videos, I will push you. You WILL get a good workout. I promise.
