Find yourself a set of stairs (the more stairs the better!)
First 5 sets run up single stairs. So one step at a time.
Second 5 sets run up double stairs. So two steps at a time.
Take 30 seconds break
Perform 100 toe taps on the bottom stair
20 ‘reach up and down’ squat jumps
Run a fast as you can to the top
Jog back down (active rest)
Repeat x 5
Perform this sequence for the desired amount of time you need to complete your HIIT today
OK so yes its been awhile since I posted a workout. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t been cranking!
Tuck this one under your belt and get into it! Trust me your legs will thank me tomorrow… Oh! and the next day
Depending on how many stairs you have access to. Most Dubians have floors and floors at their access (sorry no excuses guys!)
The workout goes……
Set your timer to a repetition of intervals. For example I set mine for 40:20 but depending on your current fitness levels you may want to increase or decrease the workload vs. rest period.
Starting at the bottom of your stairs run up as many as possible in the workload, when you hear the buzzer beep for rest that’s when you back track down the stairs until you hear the buzzer to go back up again. Repeat this until you finally reach the top.
It’s a real challenge as you constantly want to gain ground with less back track but your legs are also BURNING with lactic acid too. It’s quite sick.
Now in my apartment I have 46 floors. So you can imagine how tough it can get. If you have only a limited amount of stair space, set your intervals to shorter periods. This will ensure you’re getting a good, challenging workout! Go hard!
