Comments please

Near my house their are some steps that lead up a hill. They are very steep (some 114 steps). Its real hard work going up these. Would it be ok to go up these at a quick pace, walk briskly for half a mile and then repeat, as part of a beginner HIIT program?

I would do this first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, couple of hours before my workout 4 times a week. As time goes by I would gradually increase the speed of this exercise.

Any comments would be welcome.

    I don't think you want to do HIIT on an empty stomach.

    Hmmm, yeah, I would at least have a protein shake. REAL stairclimbing is great cardio. Whenever the weather is rough and I don't fancy cycling, I run up and down my stairs at home for 15-20 mins.... not too sure the neighbours appreciate it tho I run up and down 8-10 times, rest for a short while and repeat and so on.

    Sounds a good idea to me mate, plenty of fresh air to boot.
