Steppers - Stepping Machines
Step Machines For Lower Body Training
Steppers are exercise machines that involve the user standing upright, with the feet placed on two foot pads, and taking uphill steps while using handrails as support. A step-machine workout is rather like a cross between running or walking uphill, and lacking the impact and jarring of running. It exercises the butt muscles (like Gluteus Maximus), thigh and calf muscles. Stepping also offers good cardio-aerobic benefits and helps to burn body fat tissue.
Types of Stepper Machines
There are two different designs of step machines: dependent and independent. When you tread on the foot-pad of a dependent stepper, the other step-pad will rise. Whereas on the independent models the foot pads are not linked and can both be up or down at the same time. Dependent step machines are best for beginners, while independent machines are better for more experienced steppers.
Different Types of Step Resistance
All step machines require a means of producing resistance against which to work. Three basic types of resistance involve air-brakes, hydraulic-brakes or magnetic brakes.
Air braked Step Machines
Hydraulically Braked Steppers
Magnetically Braked Step Machines
How to Use Steppers
The best way to burn the fat tissue through exercise on a stepper is to begin your session on a lower, more moderate level, before gradually working up to a faster, more rigorous pace. Also, stand upright when doing step exercises, otherwise you may reduce the fitness benefits of your workout and increase the risk of back injury.
Stepper and Weight Control
Stepper 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 Steppers 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.
