Comment posted Running Stairs For Fat Loss by College Gal.
I have recently discovered stair running and it beats the heck out of my previous, boring Arc Trainer routine. I used to sit on that thing for 60 minutes a day, 6 days a week, and it did help me lose weight, but it’s just too steady and boring for me. I decided to run on my campus and while running, I started running to the tops of a bunch or random stairwells on campus, whether it was a parking garage or a dorm building or even a classroom building. After every ten flights of stairs I would do ab exercises or pushups. I continued this routine until I had reached 80 flights up and down. All I can say it WOW! My heart was pounding and I was so exhausted afterwards, but it’s totally worth it. I feel great now and my legs are getting more muscle tone!
