If you need some New Year's workout motivation, look no further than Norwegian Olympian Ezinne Okparaebo.

On Sunday, the 27-year-old sprinter put the average person to shame by sharing one of her impressive training routines on social media. She needed only five leaps to cover 28 stadium steps. 

It definitely isn't the typical approach to stair jumps. 

Okparaebo is a two-time Olympian who qualified for the women's 100-metre quarter-finals in Beijing and the semifinals in London. She holds the 100m record in Norway with a time of 11.10 seconds. 

She most recently produced a 15th-place finish in the 100m at the IAAF world championships in August.
