The Best Cardio Option: Take It To The Stairs

The Best Cardio Option: Take It To The Stairs

Over the course of the past 6 months, I have been rehabing a broken patella... by climbing stairs. Yep, that's right... stairs. Stairmasters, stadium facilities and even the famous Santa Monica stairs have all been outlets for my cardio and rehab. The low impact, high intensity nature of the workout allows me to move safely and protect my joints all while elevating my heart rate and the results have been fantastic. If you want to tone your glutes, strengthen your thighs and increase calorie burn, then take it to the stairs....any stairs. Try to hustle on the way up where the main effects occur and take it slow on the way down to reduce impact. You'll be amazed at how winded you get and how strong you'll feel shortly after. Get climbing!
