Would you rather subscribe to a weight loss program that is achievable with simple tools instead of going to the gym and sweating it out? Then here are some quick and easy stair work-out tips to help you lose weight.
Warm up (Stairs)
It is always important to warm your body up before you start exercising. A 15-minute stair workout can help you achieve the same result and burn the same amount of calories as a 30-minute walk. If you do not have stairs at home, you can always try the park or the stairs of public buildings in the North Jersey area.
Kneel on the floor in front of the stairs and place your hands on the bottom step. Lean forward and try to keep your body between your knees and hands. Maintain the position for a minute while breathing deeply. Rest for a while and then resume. Continue for 2-3 minutes.
Stand in front of the staircase and with your hands on the hips; place your right foot on the bottom stair. Bend both legs to form a lunging position. Make sure to keep your right shin perpendicular to the stair. Repeat with alternative legs for one minute each. Continue for 8 to 9 minutes.
Close the workout by walking or jogging up and down the stairs at a pace manageable for you. Practice normal breathing while doing this. 12 to 13 minutes of this exercise on a daily basis, should work perfectly to help you lose weight gradually.
