What Is a Stair Crazy 3 Workout?

A stair crazy routine 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. This is the 3rd and final workout in the Stair Crazy serious so be prepared for a serious burn. Your legs will feel like they want to give in at some point but keep pushing and give everything that you’ve got to finish the workout. Stair Crazy 3 will help you to lose weight, burn body fat and tone your body all at once. Ready? Let’s go!

What You Need For a Stair Crazy 3 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 Climb

Start off this workout routine by standing at the bottom of your stairs. You’ll need to climb the stairs for 1 continuous minute so make sure that you set a timer going and keep track of your work time. Walk or run up and down the stairs to alter the intensity of the workout but just be careful not to injury yourself. Once the minute is up, move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 2: Mountain Climbers

Get into a press up position and rest your bodyweight on your hands. Start performing the reps by pulling your left knee in towards your chest. Get back to your original position and then bring your right leg in towards your chest. Keep alternating legs until you’ve completed all of the reps. The faster that you can perform these, the better the results.

Repeat 4 sets of 30 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Exercise 3: Stair Climbs

Back to those stair walks. After you’ve climbed the stairs for 1 minute, move onto the next exercise.

Repeat 4 sets of 30 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Exercise 6: Table Press Ups

Before performing this, make sure that your table is pushed up against a wall so that it can’t slip or slide as this could cause an injury. Once you’ve done this, stand about a metre away from the table and lean forward so that your hands are on the table. Push yourself up from the table, hold for a second and lower yourself back towards the table.

Repeat 4 sets of 30 reps with a 15 second rest between each set.

Exercise 7: Stair Walks

Exercise 8: Jumping Jacks

Start with your feet together and your arms by your side. As you jump, your arms need to go into the air above your head and your legs need to be shoulder width apart. Challenge yourself with this exercise and see how many jumping jacks you can complete within the timeframe.

Complete 1 set of 60 seconds work followed by a 30 second rest.

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.

Try the workout

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.

At Xercise4Less Gyms, we’ve put together a number of home workouts that will help each and every single one of you focus on your fitness whilst at home, despite our gyms being closed on Government instruction from the 20th of March 2020. Smash those fitness goals, kickstart your fitness journey and join our fun and inclusive fitness community.

What Is a Buns of Steel 3 Workout?

Welcome to our 3rd and final instalment of Buns of Steel. This is our most advanced leg workout in the series and will help you to work on your legs whilst at home and push yourself out of your comfort zone to achieve amazing things! This workout includes only 5 exercises but each of them will help you to strengthen your lower body – especially your glutes – and feel more confident and stronger. Whilst this workout is designed to follow at home, this is something you can do in the gym once we reopen in our free weights areas or dedicated fitness studios.

Improve health at the gym

What You Need For a Buns of Steel 3 Workout

Throughout the workout guide you’ll notice a reference to free weights such as dumbbells and kettlebells. Using these will allow you take your workout to the next level and really focus on your strength and fitness. If you have this equipment, perfect! If not, don’t worry because you can use some household alternatives instead. Pick up some jars/tins or fill up a couple of bags of tins for an extra bit of weight. You could also use a couple of water bottles or a bottle of fabric conditioner – get creative and see what you can find around the house. Make sure that you have a dedicated exercise space in either your dining room, living room or garden. Now, grab your gym kit and a comfortable pair of trainers and let’s get started!

Exercise 1: Goblet Squats

You’ll need your kettlebell for this exercise, or any alternative that you’re using at the moment. Start by standing upright and holding your weight in both hands close to your chest. Stand with your feet hip width apart and sit down into a low squat. A goblet squat is all about that depth so try to get as low as you can!

Repeat 5 sets of 10 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 2: Deadlifts

A deadlift is a great full body exercise and definitely works those legs. Start by standing upright holding your ‘kettlebell’ between your legs. Bend down so that you touch the floor with your weight and then stand upright again, slightly leaning back as you come up. Try to keep your back straight when performing because hunching can cause an injury to your lower back.

Repeat 5 sets of 10 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Try the workout

Exercise 3: Hip Thrusts

You don’t need weights for this but you do need to perform the exercise carefully to avoid injury. Rest your back onto a high surface such as your bed or sofa, whilst you sit on your floor with your knees up and feet in front on you. Thrust your hips into the air, hold for a couple of seconds and then return to the original position. Try not to over extend your thrusting motion as you may cause injury to your lower back.

Repeat 5 sets of 10 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 4: Reverse Lunges (Alternate)

To perform a reverse lunge safely, perform your first couple of reps slowly to perfect your from. Stand up straight with your feet shoulder width apart and then push your left back into a lunge position and lower yourself to the ground. Return upright and then repeat with your right leg. This is a great exercise for your glutes and hamstrings.

Repeat 5 sets of 10 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Try the workout

Exercise 5: Lunge Jumps

Now that you’ve perfected your lunges, let’s make the movement slightly more difficult. Start by stepping forward into a lunge position with your left foot forward. Lower yourself into a lunge and jump into the air. As you jump, alternate your legs so that your right foot is now in front of your left. Keep your arms by your side, swinging them for momentum but also using them to help you balance. If you’re struggling, jump into the middle between lunges to help you keep your balance.

Repeat 5 sets of 10 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Cardio Overview - Rowing Machine

What You Need For a Pull Workout

To maximise this full workout routine, you’ll need some weighted equipment. In our gyms, we provide access to dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells and wide selection of free weights equipment to follow this workout guide. If you have this type of equipment in the house, choose a comfortable weight and start following the workout. If you don’t have weighted equipment, use household items instead. Grab a couple of tins or fill up two carrier bags of tins and jars and hold them in each handYou could use water bottles, boxes or bottles of washing detergent – now is the time to get creative. You can still perform these exercises without weights if you like, it’s up to you. Now, grab your gym kit and a comfortable pair of trainers and let’s go!  

Exercise 1: Squats

Ease yourself into this full body workout and warm up your legs with some simple air squats. Stand upright with your legs shoulder 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. Try not to hunch your back. Keeping your head upright and facing forwards will help you to get the correct posture.  

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 2: Bulgarian Split Squat (Left Leg)

Now that your legs are warmed up, let’s move onto a Bulgarian Split Squat to really target your lower body. Firstly, you need a piece of furniture that is knee height that you can rest one foot on – something hard like a dining chair or coffee table. Stand up straight, grab your dumbbell or ‘weights’ in either hand and put your right leg out in front of you. Now rest your left foot on the chair or table. Keep your balance the best you can and slowly squat downwards. You should feel this working your quads and glutes.  

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 3: Bulgarian Split Squats (Right Leg)

This exercise is the same as before, just with the opposite leg. So, start with your left leg out in front this time and place your right foot onto the chair/table and start performing the Bulgarian Split Squats. If you’re struggling with the balance, try to focus on one object in the room as it’ll help you stay steady

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 4: Table Press Ups

Now we’re moving onto some upper body movements. Push your chest muscles with this next exercise – table press ups. Before performing this, make sure that your table is pushed up against a wall so that it can’t slip or slide as this could cause an injury. Once you’ve done this, stand about a metre away from the table and lean forward so that your hands are on the table. Push yourself up from the table, hold for a second and lower yourself back towards the table. This will put pressure on your arms and chest and push them to get stronger.  

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.  

Try the workout

Exercise 5: Shoulder Press

Continue working that upper body with a shoulder press. Grab your weighted equipment and stand upright. Start with your hands at either side of your shoulders and push them upwards until your arms are fully extended. This is one rep. Work on really toning and defining your shoulders with this challenging and effective upper body exercise. Standing up whilst performing this exercise also engages your core. 

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 6: Seat Bent-Over Rows

For this exercise, you need a dumbbell in each hand. If you haven’t got dumbbells, fill up a couple of water bottles and hold one in each hand. Next, find a chair in your house (avoid sort furnishing like a sofa or armchair) and hold your ‘weights’ at either side of you. Lean your body forward with your face parallel to the floor and then raise your arms up to your hips. You should feel your back muscles working as your perform each rep. 

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Exercise 7: Standing Bicep Curls - Alternate

By standing up, you’ll be able to engage your core at the same time which is great for abdominal definitionTo perform your first rep, simply pull your left arm up towards your shoulder and squeeze your bicep muscle. Now, repeat this movement with your right arm and continue alternating your arms in this way.  

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.  

Try the workout

Exercise 8: Chair Tricep Dips

Now let’s start working on sculpting and toning our upper arms! A chair tricep dip needs to be performed on a hard upright chair, so please avoid doing this on a sofa or arm chair. Check that the chair can withstand your bodyweight before completing a single rep. To start, sit with your back to the chair and your feet flat on the floor with your knees up. Put your hands onto the seat of the chair and lower your body so that your bum nearly touches the floor. Fully extend your arms so that you’re in your original position and repeat.  

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.  

Try the workout

Exercise 9: Board to Mountains

This is more of an advanced movement but don’t let that put you off! Firstly, get yourself into a press up position with your weight resting on your hands. Then, push your bum into the air so that you’re shaped to a point. Hold this for a couple of seconds and then lower your body to the starting press up position. This is working your shoulders, chest, triceps and core – the ultimate full body exercise. 

Repeat 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps with a 30 second rest between each set.

Hip Abductor Workout Guide

Hip Abduction Machine
Hip Abduction Machine

Build a strong lower body at Xercise4Less

Following regular leg workouts and bum workouts will help you to build up a great deal of strength and muscle in your lower body which will benefit your other gym sessions and general life too.

If you want increase muscle mass in specific areas such as your glutes, make the most of the hip abductor machine in the resistance machine zone in your Xercise4Less gym. Some of our Ladies Only zones also have a hip abductor meaning that you can work on your lower body strength and start introducing weight training to your workout routine in a comfortable and inclusive space.  

Hip Abductor Machine

How to use the hip abductor effectively to grow your glutes

To make the most of the hip abductor at Xercise4Less Gyms, follow the workout guide to make sure that you’re hitting the right muscles and reaching your full potential in the gym. Firstly, what are you using the hip abductor for? It helps to strengthen and grow the gluteal muscles which are made up of 3 separate muscle groups. By building up stronger and bigger muscles, they will appear more prominent and toned.

When using the hip abductor, start by taking a seat and moving the footrests to a comfortable position. Your workout will be better if you’re starting with your knees together because you get a full range of motion. Once you’re comfortable, position your feet flat on the footrests. Now move the pin into your desired weight. To perform one rep, push your legs outwards as far as they go. Hold this position for a second and then return to your starting position. Repeat this process for 10 reps and 3 sets.

To use this machine to really target your glutes, push out far enough to feel it in your outer glutes and hips. This is what will help your lower body muscles really grow and increase the strength. Try to increase the weight whilst performing these sets just to push yourself and help you to get that little bit stronger. Form is always important when using weighted equipment in the gym. Start with a lower weight to perfect your form and then once you’ve built up more confidence, start to add more weight. Let’s build that peach!

The benefits of strong glutes

Having a strong lower body and strong glutes has lots of benefits. If your bum and legs are one of your problem areas, working on these muscles and toning these parts of your body will improve your body confidence which is really important for your mental health. Not forgetting how strong glutes will help you navigate daily life with more confidence and strength especially with tasks like heavy lifting at work.

This will mean that you’re able to perform more advanced exercises like barbell squats and lunges with ease as you’ve already built up strong enough muscles using the hip abductor machine in the resistance machines gym zone. If one of your main fitness goals is to build muscle, use the hip abductor during your leg workouts to help you increase strength and build up more confidence to start using the free weight gym zones more at Xercise4Less.
