How to take part in the stairwell challenge

Look for a stairwell with four to five steps. Run up and down the stairs once to warm up a bit so that you are not unprepared.

Begin by standing on the second uppermost stair. Then jump up to the landing, taking care to land securely without wobbling.

If you succeed, go down to the third uppermost stair and jump up to the landing again. Repeat the exercise adding a stair each time. How many stairs can you clear in single jump? Take care not to injure yourself. You may want to use the banister for support at the beginning. Grab hold of the banister mid-jump and secure your landing.

If you would like to increase the challenge, try to jump over two or three steps multiple times in a row.
