Hey Guys,

I’m back with another quick tip of the week.This weeks tip is simple but effective and can be used by anyone

Choosing the stairs over the Lift/Elevator

The Lift/Elevator at work or at the shopping centre may be a nice convenience, but taking the stairs will strengthen your heart, burn extra calories and tone your entire lower body. If you have stairs at home, take every opportunity to use them.

Walking up and down stairs for 20 minutes a day works nicely if you need to squeeze in some cardio but find you are short for time.

I like to consider myself as fit but even walking up a few flight of stairs can have a guy feeling a little short of breath LOL.

Not that I should have to tell you, but the more steps the better…but you already knew this right 🙂

Stair Lunges

If you have stairs at home, a little work out you can try is lunging up the steps and pausing at the bottom for a nice burn.

Here’s how I see it…taking the stairs cost nothing but a few extra minutes out of your day. And what’s a few extra minutes when where talking about your health…Think about it!
