Stadium Stairs Workout

Wednesday already?! This week is flying! 

As I've mentioned before, a group of my super cool coworkers have been heading down to the track for group workouts every Wednesday. After running sprints like the gear shift track interval workout, we also use the bleachers to pump up the intensity even more with some stair running and body weight exercises. So for today's Workout Wednesday (WOW) Linkup, find your nearest (and least creepy for you to be at) set of bleachers or even favorite flight of stairs for a stadium stairs workout.


1. Run to the top of the stairs 
20 triceps dips 
Jog back down 
20 sit ups

2. Run to the top, two at a time! 
15 wall push ups 
Jog back down 
40 Russian twists

3. Run to the top of the stairs
30 second plank 
Jog back down 
30 toe touches

4. Run to the top, two at a time!
30 second side plank
Jog back down
30 second side plank

5. Run to the top of the stairs
20 squats
Jog back down

30 bicycle crunches


6. Walking lunges to the top, two at a time
    20 shoulder push ups
    Jog back down
    20 double leg lifts

Q: Stair running-- love it, hate it, or hate to love it?

  13. We should apply different strategies to develop our workout plans so that we can easily get a perfect toned body. Apart from the gym, we can also take the support of other cardio workout programs such as; running, swimming, jogging, Yoga practice, stair workouts and many others. For these types of exercise, we don't need to visit a gym or gym accessories. Thanks for these wonderful tips.
