STEPPED-UP LEG TONER
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.
