Stair Climb Training Quick Tips

  • For all stair climbing training use a stair case with approximately 8-12 flights of stairs for all training sessions.
  • ‘Stairs’ in the following program refers to climbing the 8-12 flights of stairs you will be training on.
  • Preferably use a stair case that has access to an elevator to take you down after each climb, this reduces stress on the knees when running down stairs.
  • If you do not have access to an elevator avoid running down stairs, instead walk to minimise impact on your knees.
  • Try to take two steps at a time when climbing for a more efficient climb.
  • Use railing if it is available.
