The Stairmaster, or whatever step machine is always my favourite at the gym. I hate running. Okay, so I’ve proven that I don’t hate it, but I wouldn’t put it up there as my favourite thing to do.
But climb a bunch of stairs or a hill? I love that. I genuinely love doing that.
At work I forgo the elevator, I only take the steps and I enjoy it. Besides the added benefit of my legs looking shapelier, I have fun doing it. It’s instant gratification. You can feel the burn and the constantly moving closer to the top is just so motivating. Plus you can do it at your own pace, it’s a much more relaxing feeling from the get go than running.
Yesterday I went on an adventure which involved a ton of walking uphill. Best. Adventure. In. Forever. I woke up with my calves throbbing. Worth it.
Granted its made today’s workout a lot more challenging, but pfft.
Walking is fun. Climbing is funner.
