This morning M and I headed to the track for a workout from Men’s Fitness that uses stairs or bleachers.
This is not my local track by the way. Here’s the workout…
Warm Up: Jog up the staircase at half speed and walk back down. Repeat five times.
Sprint—Set 1: Sprint up the steps and walk down. Repeat for five total sprints.
Pushup—Set 1: Perform as many pushups as you can with your feet on the third step and hands on the ground. Rest 10 seconds, then move to the bottom of the stairs and do flat pushups. Rest, then place your hands on the third step up and rep out again.
Stair Jump: Stand at the bottom of the steps and jump onto the staircase, landing on the highest step you can, softly and under control. Walk back down and repeat for six total jumps. Rest 30 seconds, and repeat for two sets.
Pushup—Set 2: Perform 10 pushups with your hands on the first step. Walk your hands up to the second step and repeat. Continue, performing 10 pushups on each step. Rest one minute.
Sprint—Set 2: Sprint up the stairs and walk back down to the bottom. Repeat immediately and continue for three total sprints.
Ab Walkout: Crouch on the middle of the staircase and walk your hands down the steps until your body is straight. Hold for as long as you can. Rest 15 seconds, and repeat for three sets. (I just did this on the flat ground)
Rest 60 seconds, then repeat the entire workout once more.
We ran a mile before and a mile after it also. It was hard but I liked incorporating strength training into my week.
