One of the most effective cardio exercises can be done on something you see every day – stairs. They’re easy to find, require no special techniques and can provide a meditative experience. In this video, Harley demonstrates easy ways to approach the stairs to boost your heart rate and engage your glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves in the process.
“One of my favourite stretching routines is actually done on an adjustable bench,” says Harley. In this how-to video, Harley shares a simple yet effective routine you can perform after any workout to release the tension in your hamstrings, glutes, hips, adductors and hip flexors. Starting on one side, hold each pose for 20 to 30 seconds (and try not to bounce!), then repeat on the other side.
