Day 33: Stair Climbers
Stair Climbers provide cardiovascular conditioning, such as normalized blood pressure, better circulation, and decreased serum cholesterol, increased metabolism to help maintain a healthy body weight, improved leg and hip strength, and improved mental functioning, including better concentration, improved mood, decreased stress, and more restful sleep. Keep in mind that climbing up a flight of stairs is easier on your knees than walking down the steps, so consider climbing up the stairs but taking the elevator back to the bottom.
Step 1: Start by climbing up stairs for one minute.
Step 2: If you have to walk back down, go down more slowly and less aggressively than you went up.
Step 3: Over time, increase your climbing to 15 minutes.
