HIIT At The Santa Monica Stairs Workout #LLTV


World Famous Santa Monica Stairs Workout

Live Lean Nation,

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m taking you to the world famous Santa Monica Stairs for a HIIT workout that will scare the body fat right off of you. Prepare for the lactic acid burn with this workout!

This stairs workout is comprised of just 10 sets of stair sprints.

The Santa Monica stairs are comprised of approximately 170 stairs at an elevation of about 109 feet! It took approximately 51 seconds to get to the top of the stairs (while fighting through traffic) and about 53 seconds to get down the stairs.

My heart rate reached a peak of 177 beats per minute during this workout. I rested between intervals until my heart rate dropped to 125 beats per minute.

Overall this stairs workout will take you just over 20 minutes and the SWEAT WILL BE POURING OFF YOU!

Are you ready?

  1. ok so I dont have stairs but I have step ups…I go up and down for one
    minute straight and I add ten pound dumbells on set number 7 of ten….

  2. You must have felt amazing when you completed your 10 sets. One advantaged you have is great weather which is a good motivator. I live I the UK and working out first thing in the morning takes a lot of motivation! I have incorporated stairs sprints in my workout when I go for a run.

  3. does everyone do those stairs for exercise or is that a way to go like
    hiking or down to the beach some where?.. those stairs look intense.

  4. Hi Brad, I recently bought a heart monitor to aid in my fat loss efforts. I have combed the web for info related to hiit workouts, heat rate zones and fat burn, but seem to get conflicting info as to what your heart rate should be at during a hiit workout to maximize fat burn.

    I was wondering if you could do a video on heart monitors and heart rate zones, specifically geared towards hitt workouts and fat burning. I would really…really appreciate your advice and expertise! Thx =)

  5. I use stairs when I do interval workouts at the track – I do all the bleacher steps at the field back & forth twice. I don’t get much HIIT in because I’m endurance training at the moment and it’s just too much to do strength, endurance, and a lot of HIIT. But I do love shaking it up with sprints, stairs, and intervals, and I always make sure I hit the bleachers now after I’ve seen your stair workouts.

  6. Hey Brad, make another “A Day In The Life” with all your routine. All your
    meals (with recipe), your workout… your routine since you wake up till
    you go to bed =D

    Great video, bro.

  7. I used to do sand dune sprints every week with my football team for
    training. They were really good! Nice one Brad, keep it up 🙂
