A staircase can be a great training tool when you’re traveling but we use it all the time, especially when training power. By increasing the range of motion over which you can produce power and reducing the impact forces of each landing we can do more quality work with less soreness than we can on flat ground.
Here is an example of a workout we like to do on our staircase which is 15 steps high. Just take your time between efforts to stay fresh and make sure you hit all of your steps!
