What Are The Benefits of Using A Stair Climber?

What are the benefits of using a stair climber? 😉
The stair climber provides a great cardio workout that’s easy on your joints but at the same time builds pretty much every muscle in your legs and bum due to it being a weight-bearing exercise. The repetitive step motion helps tone your lower body whilst working your core muscles at the same time. You can alternate the speed on the machine, you can exercise to your preference, whether that’s low intensity steady state cardio or high intensity interval training. Either way, a stair climber is a machine which is suitable for all fitness abilities and levels and a great way to get your heart rate up, improve cardiovascular endurance and stamina.

What do you do on it?
Climb stairs! But you’ll be surprised at the variety of exercises you can perform using this machine.

Here are three stair climber workouts to get your started.
Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, then start the machine at a slow speed. Squat down then spring up onto the next stair, making sure you bend your knees as you land. To keep your balance, keep your hands lightly on the handrails.

One step, two step: Climbing one stair at a time works out your quads. Climbing two stairs at a time targets your hamstrings and glutes. So to get a full leg workout do both! Try five sets alternating between one step and two step for two minutes at a time. To make it even harder, increase the level each set.

Crossover steps: If you’re looking to tone and firm up your bum you could do a lot worse than try crossovers for ten minutes. Simply step up with your right foot placing it on the next step where your left foot would normally land. Then step up with your left foot placing it on the next step where your right foot would normally land. To keep your balance (and for safety) keep your hands lightly on the handrails throughout.
