This 10 minute workout will strengthen muscles needed to walk up and down stairs: glutes, hips, thighs, core and legs. Perfect for seniors and beginners.
All you need is one step indoors or outdoors. You can also use a workout step that you can find at stores or online. (Here's a link to an example of one: If you purchase one through this link, we may receive a small commission.This helps us to continue to post free content on YouTube. Thank you so much for your support!)
For safety, we recommend being near a railing or wall for stability. Having a loved one or friend to provide company and help if needed is recommended as well.
The two exercises in this workout are:
✳️ Side Step Up – Right and Left
✳️ Step Back – Right and Left
Do 10 repetitions on each side. Start with one set and build up to 3 sets.
We start this workout with a short warmup, followed by a cooldown that includes lower body stretches.
These exercises can be part of the recommended two full body strength sessions per week. One option is to add them to your lower body strength work.
