What Is a Stair Crazy Workout?

A stair crazy is a full body workout that introduces the use of the stairs in your home to help you burn calories and tone your body. Make the most of being stuck indoors during this lockdown and use what you have around you to your advantage. Get fitter, get stronger and get your body tighter and toned by following this stair crazy workout. Between every exercise, you’ll be walking (or running, your choice) up some stairs to help you really boost your full body fitness and strength.

What You Need For a Stair Crazy Workout

This workout guide was designed to complete at home so we’ve tried to keep the equipment to a minimal. You only need to use your stairs for this exercise and nothing else; the rest of the exercises are bodyweight exercise that you can do in the comfort of your own home regardless of training experience and fitness ability.  

Exercise 1: Stair Walks

Start off this workout routine by standing at the bottom of your stairs. You need to perform 20 reps with this exercise so make sure you have 20 steps to walk up. If you don’t have 20, climb 10 and then return to the bottom and repeat. After you’ve done your stair walks, return to the bottom of your steps and move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 2: Crunches

Start your next exercise by laying flat on your back with your feet pointing upwards. Simply start performing a crunch to tone and sculpt your abs – raise your chest and shoulders whilst squeezing your core and hold for a second. Try to keep your legs flat and don’t overextend and cause an injury to your back. 

Repeat 3 sets of 15 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Exercise 4: Squats

Stand with your legs hip width apart and slowly sit into a squat. Place your arms on your hips or hold them out in front of you – whatever is most comfortable. It’s important to keep your back straight to avoid injury. Keeping your head upright and facing forwards will help you to get the correct posture. Sit into these squats as low as you possibly can to really engage your glutes.

Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps with a 15 second rest between each set

Exercise 6: Knee Press Ups

This is a modified version of a press up. Simply get onto all fours on the ground and slightly lean forward so that your body is at a 45 degree angle so that your feet are off the ground and your bodyweight is resting your hands and knees. Once you’re in this position, try to keep your back straight and lower yourself to the ground. Just before you touch the floor, press down and push your body back up.

Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Exercise 7: Stair Walks

Back to those stair walks – only one more set to go after this. Your legs might start burning now but keep pushing! After 20 steps have been climbed, move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 8: Laying Leg Raises

Start this exercise by laying flat on the floor again. Crunch your upper body so that your shoulders are off the ground – just like you did with the crunch. However, this time you need to bring your knees in towards your stomach at the same time to put more pressure on your core. Hold this for a couple of seconds and then stretch your stomach out by laying flat again.

Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Home Workout Safety Information

Before following the workout, make sure that you have enough space to perform movements freely to prevent any injury. If you need a piece of furniture to perform an exercise, make sure that it can stand your weight and that the movement feels comfortable. If you’re struggling, please switch the exercise for something that feels more natural. There isn’t much different in terms of safety when it comes to home workout vs gym workouts; just practice correct form to stay safe and prevent injury.
