With just one step, not even an entire flight of stairs - you will be able to get your heart rate up and burn those calories. (KTRK)

If you have a step or curb at your home, then you've got the perfect piece of exercise equipment. Real Results Fitness Owner and personal trainer, Alison Lackey showed us how to use a stair to take your workout to the next level.

Side Squat Jumps: Stand perpendicular to the step, put one foot on the step and one on the curb. Make sure your feet are shoulder-width apart. Squat and do 25 squat jumps with each leg on the curb.
Decline Push Ups: Put your feet on the step, hands on the ground wider than your shoulders, and complete 20 push ups. For beginners, put your hands on the step and your feet on the ground for an incline push up.

Straight Arm Plank with Leg Raise: Put your hands on the ground in a plank position and your feet on a step. Hold the straight arm plank, and lift one leg up straight, then bring your knee into your waist, then push your leg back out and lower. Repeat alternating legs for one minute.
Single Leg Squats: Face the step. Raise one leg off the ground, bending it. Squat on one leg and touch the step, as you stand up, bring your knee up and balance. Repeat 20 on each leg.

Step Squats: Depending on the height of your step, you may just use it as a guide. With your feet hip-width apart, squat down until your bottom almost touches the step and stand up, sticking your chest out and keeping good posture. Squat as low as it takes for your thighs to be parallel to the floor but not further than that. Repeat 25 times.
