Many of us simply do not have time in our busy days to go to the gym. In cold climates, it may not be practical to go outside to exercise every day. Luckily, there are many simple exercises that can be done around the house to keep you in shape.
If you have a set of stairs in your home or office, you already have the perfect workout tool. Even a few reps walking up and down the stairs, enough to get your heart beating faster and make you break a sweat, can do wonders for your cardiovascular health.
When climbing up and down the stairs, make sure to keep your back straight and your shoulders back – no slouching! Climb and descend each step deliberately, keeping the majority of your weight on your heels, and tightening your glutes as you step. This will make sure that you get the most out of each climb.
