Take the stairs. We all know this. But I didn’t know it was this good.
From USA Today. “Stair climbing is one of the best ways to strengthen the glutes and leg muscles, according to the American Council on Exercise. It’s a great cardiovascular workout and burns more calories than jogging and walking.”
Burns more calories than jogging and walking?? I live on the top floor of a 5th floor walkup (this shot is looking down from the top floor). I’ve always worried about what it’s going to be like for me when I’m a little old lady. How will I manage?
But maybe climbing up and down these stairs several times a day all these years has been the best thing for me. Climbing up and down weighed down with kitty litter, no less. I’ll just eventually go slower and slower and slower.
