Stair climb rules:

  • Beginners start with one flight of steps (depending on how many steps). See how you feel and add more as successful.
  • Always walk back down steps or do stairs as a loop instead – so you are always going up.
  • Make sure whole foot steps on the step – don’t let your heel hang off edge.
  • Don’t let your knees cave in or bow out as you climb.
  • You can climb every step or every other – change it up!
  • If climbing stairs outdoors, be careful on wet or cold days – stairs may be slippery.
