Review of Stairclimbers

Stair Climbing Machines

What are Stairclimbers?

The terms "stairclimber" and "stepper" are often used interchangeably, but in fact they refer to two different exercise machines. Stairclimbers work the whole body, while steppers exercise only the lower half. One of the most popular stair climbing brands is Stairmaster®, although other stairclimbing machines include brands like LifeFitness®, Schwinn®, Star Trac® and PRECOR®.

Exercise Workouts Using a Stairclimber

Fitness workouts involving stairclimbers, like Stairmaster, helps to burn off excess body fat and tones and strengthens the lower-body muscles, including the gluteal muscles in the buttocks (Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, Glutus Minimus), hamstrings and quadriceps in the thighs, and the gastrocnemius muscle in the calf. In addition, stairclimbing works several of the muscle-groups in the upper body.

Stairclimbers - Good Cardio-Aerobic Training

Exercise studies have demonstrated that stair climbers can produce high heart rates for less perceived aerobic effort than many other forms of cardio-aerobic training.

Steady Rhythm Best When Using Stair Climber

The most effective way to maximize the benefits of a Stairmaster stairclimber machine is to maintain a steady tempo and controlled rhythm, while minimizing bouncing.

Stairclimbers and Weight Control

Stairclimber machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Stairclimbers need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
