A stairwell is one of the most overlooked, highly effective training tools—why else would anyone ever wait for the elevator? Not only are stairs ready-made for a killer cardio workout, but they can also be used for upper- and lower-body strength exercises. I love getting outside the gym to enjoy the fresh air so this full-body routine is one of my favorites to do at the beach or a nearby college stadium. If you don't have access to either of those, between your office, apartment building, home, or local park, you're never that far from a set of stairs. No excuses!
Do this workout three times per week to torch calories and sculpt a strong, lean physique. Do 1 set of each exercise back to back, and then repeat the full circuit 2 more times (3 times total).
