30-Minute Stair Circuit Workout

Hey Friends! Yesterday I got the urge to do my first stair workout. Have you ever done one before?

I tried to look online but I couldn’t find anything that was at least 30 minutes long with weights, so I took a few minutes to create something that perhaps you might enjoy!

I recorded a short video with an explanation of the stair circuit I did with suggested modifications. You don’t need fancy equipment or gym membership to get started on the road to more muscles and higher metabolism!

(p.s. ignore my really messy basement. The boys live down there and I rarely check it out – YIKES!)

Before you start this workout, put your music on, dance for 5 minutes to warm up and then and do this set of exercises (circuit) 2-3 times for a great heart-pumping and muscle building workout!

  • pushups :30 seconds
  • skip-a-step stairs 1x-4x depending on your fitness level
  • bicep curls :30 seconds
  • skip-a-step stairs 1x-4x
  • :30 second plank
  • skip-a-step stairs 1x-4x
  • :30 seconds side planks (left & right)
  • skip-a-step stairs 1x-4x
  • tricep dips :30 seconds

(If you don’t have stairs, do 30 secs of Jumping Jacks and 30 secs of squats to get the heart rate up!).

Grab water and go again! Take short breaks when you need them. Lastly, take a few minutes to cool down and stretch.

When I finished, I was breathing hard and sweating… it was awesome to use what I had in my own house!

It’s really important to get in some high-quality protein within 30-mins of your workout for optimal recovery, too. I personally get in anywhere from 24g to 35 grams of protein plus a post-recovery product called Amped Recover that I love, too.

I’ll probably start creating a stair circuit or two each week to mix it up and post here, so if you want it, be sure to sign up for email blog updates!

Do you ever do stair workouts? Are there any good resources I’ve missed that I should share with my readers?

  1. I had tied something different on the stairs before with an instructor and it seemed too hard for me, so I stopped. I am goign to be trying out yours bits by bits to see how it goes. You really seemed to be enjoying it 🙂

    Thanks a lot for the share.

    • Hi Cindy, Thanks for checking it out! I’d appreciate any feedback you have or suggestions for improvement. I’m not a certified instructor, I just had a friend ask me what I was doing for my at-home workouts and wanted to share. You can definitely modify the workout to your training level 🙂 Hope you find it helpful!
