HealthTip  "HEALTH "TIP OF THE WEEK"

Trying to get up and move more? Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t have time for the gym — just climb the stairs! If you’ve got stairs, then you’ve got the perfect place to get moving. The seemingly innocuous steps that take you from one floor to the next can add years to your life. Take a few breaks during your day and climb for 15 minutes at work or home. You’ll strengthen your quads, glutes, hamstrings, calves, hip flexors and core — all areas that are weakened by hours of sitting. Plus, if you typically walk, run or bicycle, it’s a great way to use muscles that may get neglected during your normal activity. Remember, any climbing at all is a step in the right direction.
