WOW Workout Of the Week(end)

If you're like me, you typically reserve your weekends for "catching up" on some exercise that you slacked on during the week.  But then the weekend comes, and my hubby is home, and my baby is happy, and I really don't want to leave the house and go to the gym (and running outside here now is still pretty sketchy).

So a HOME workout it is!  Here is one of my favorites- and all you need is a set of stairs (10-15 steps preferably).

Stair Workout

1. 10 sets running stairs (with a weight if desired)

2. 10 deep squats (place your heels against the bottom stair and squat down so that you tap the second stair with your rear)

3.  10 push-ups (feet on ground beneath bottom step, hands on 4th stair)


1. 20 stair jumps (squat and jump up one stair, then jump down)

2. 10 tricep dips (hands on 2nd stair behind you, feet on ground)

3.  10 bulgarian lunges each leg (toe on step back behind you- keep weight in the heel of your front leg, drop back knee down as you bend the front one too)


Finish with three alternating sets of 25 crunches + 1 minute plank.
