Calorie Blasting Stairs and Burpee Challenge

  I have to admit, this workout gave me a run for my money! I’m always looking for a good challenge, and this was exactly what I needed to start my weekend. You can do this at home (yay) as long as you have a set of stairs (my stair set consists of 20 stairs. If you have more or less, adjust the number of sets appropriately) – if not track down the nearest set of stairs by you and be prepared to push yourself to the limit. Here’s the game plan:
We will be doing intervals of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50
Always start with a warmup!

Warmup:

1min. jog in place
20 jumping jacks
20 butt kicks
20 high knees
10 lunges each leg
20 deep body squats
10 side lunges each leg

Let me know what you thought of this workout.
