Ten Minute Stair Workout
Get employees together. Warm up and get the blood flowing in the legs by climbing the stairs slowly at first. Keep your core engaged as you climb at walking pace. Do this for 1 minute. Now for 5 minutes run up the stairs then walk down. On the descent put most of your weight on your heels so that you avoid impact to your knees. Each minute rest for 30 seconds. Then to cool down walk slowly again for 1 minute.
