Cardio: Sideways Stair RunSideways Stair Run

Time: 30 seconds
Start at the bottom of the stairs with your right side of the body closest to the stairs. Leading with your right foot, run up the stairs sideways. (Pretend your feet are chasing each other. Right foot goes first but as the left foot starts to approach the first step, the right foot should already be lifting to move up to the second step.) When you get to the top, walk down the stairs normally. Repeat.

Strength: Push-Upsstair-pushups

Time: 30 seconds
Targets: Chest, arms, shoulders, core
Place hands on first or second step with legs extended behind you on the ground so you’re in plank position. (The higher the step your hands are on, the easier the push-up will be.) Make sure your hands are shoulder-width apart. Bend elbows and slowly lower your chest down to the step. Exhale as you press your chest back up to starting position, keeping your core tight throughout. Repeat.
