WHAT TO DO

Do this quick work­out any­where there are stairs—post it at the bot­tom of a flight in your home to re­mind your­self.

Walk up and down one flight nor­mally.

Slowly walk up side­ways, cross­ing bot­tom foot over top one, keep­ing head up. Walk down nor­mally. Re­peat, fac­ing op­po­site di­rec­tion.

Start­ing with right foot, step up on first stair; bring left foot up; bring right down, then left down. Re­peat 10 times. Then do 10 more, start­ing with left foot.

Climb stairs two at a time for one flight; come down quickly us­ing each step. Then run up one flight; walk down nor­mally. Re­peat the se­quence four more times.

At bot­tom, place right foot on first or sec­ond step, bend knees, and lower into a lunge, keep­ing right knee di­rectly over an­kle. Push off with right foot to re­turn to start. Re­peat with left leg. Al­ter­nate legs for 20 lunges to­tal.

Walk up and down nor­mally once to cool down.
