The Ultimate Staircase Workout for Serious Fitness Gains

Running up stairs brings even more benefits. Because the body is constantly being lifted upward with each step, it engages more leg muscles than running and improves vertical jump.

Plus, according to Greatist Expert and strength trainer Jordan Syatt, running upstairs is easier on the joints than regular sprints while being better at improving athletes’ range of motion. 

But the best thing about staircase workouts? They can be done on any staircase and, in a manner similar to our love, they don’t cost a thing. So find some steps and step on the gas, because Jordan Syatt has put together two incredible high-intensity interval trainingstaircase workouts—one for beginners and one for the more advanced peeps.

You shouldn’t need too many stairs for this, just enough that you can run continuously for 10 to 15 seconds (about two to three flights). Remember to keep your focus on the top of the steps ahead of you. You can do it!

A staircase workout is an incredibly effective way to improve fitness and overall health: One study found that simply walking up 200 steps twice a day, five days a week, for eight weeks, can cause a 17 percent increase in VO2 max, which is a common way of measuring someone’s aerobic fitness.

  1. Contreras, obrigada pela ilustre visita, recebemos um comentário de uma pessoa nos atingindo dizendo que nos achamos acima do tudo e de todos, pois foi questionado o comentário do técnico Marcelo, não questionamos a verdade dele, só mostramos a nossa realidade de maneira prática, nós temos a amostra da água coletada por uma pessoa de total crdilbiiddaee, vimos e isso ninguém pode negar e agora como fica, duas verdades em um só caso?

  2. Really good article on the need for an integrated web app for flexible workspace! Nothing was available when we started up Satellite Telework Centers, and so we had to create our own. It allows our members to reserve the space they want 24/7, (and use space 24/7, whether we’re staffed or not), register for various kinds of mermsbehips, auto bill for memberships and additional usages and services. We’re adding more features, but we’ve been running with it for a few years!
