Exercise 1 High-Knee Skip
Start at the bottom and place your forefoot on the bottom step. Hop up while driving your opposite knee above your hip. Swing your arms in the running motion to maintain balance and to accentuate the hop. Place the forefoot of the high knee leg onto the next step and hop right into the next repetition. Alternate sides as you climb the stairs. Once you get to the top or through about 20 stairs, walk to the bottom and do the next exercise.
