One of the only consistent things in my life right now are my workouts with @kirastokesfit. The routine of working out every day has played such a big role in my mental health over the past six months, and I’m so grateful to be able to move my body. Kir and I recently did this amazing stair workout using my staircase at home and SO many of you asked her to share! I posted the workout on my feed, but wanted to add it to the blog for anyone who wants to reference in the future 🙂 keep scrolling for the workout I’ve been doing on repeat lately!
#1 STEP PISTOL SQUAT PREP
Sit back into your hips, tap your heel to the ground maintaining squareness and alignment in your hips. Squeeze glute at the top. Repeat 12-15 reps.
#2 STEP KNEE DRIVES
Put all your weight on the heel of your planted foot (on step) when you tap the ball of the foot, give it a light tap as if you’re tapping glass. Repeat 12-15 reps.
#3 SKIP A STAIR WALK
Push from the heel for added glute activation, singles on the way down. Repeat 2-4 sets.
—REPEAT SERIES ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE—
#4 STAIR PLANK TAPS
Get into plank position with your hands on the stairs, try to keep your body as still as possible (no hip dancing!) and complete 10 reps total. 1 rep = tapping left & right shoulders.
#5 STAIR FROGGER SQUAT THRUSTS
This one might work a little better for those with petite feet 😉 hop your feet onto the step outside of your hands and pop up, place your hands back on the step between your feet and hop back to plank position. Repeat 10-12 reps.
—REPEAT ENTIRE CIRCUIT 3 TIMES—
