Got Stairs? Quick 10 Minute Workout

If you’re tired of running the streets, run some stairs! This is the best way to shake-up your routine, get in some intense cardio, and work your legs.

  1. run up, walk down
  2. run up every other step, walk down

Do 4-5 sets of this, and you’ll have earned some pretty crazy sweat!
