Stepping Fitness Workout

Stepping Machine Workout

Stairclimbing and Stepping Gym Machines - Introduction

Both machines are a good way to burn body fat and give definition to the thighs and butt. Offering a form of step-aerobics, stepping machines only work the lower body, but stairclimbers work the whole body, including the chest (pecs), shoulders (deltoids) and arms (triceps/biceps). It’s important to stand correctly on the machines, as correct posture means you work the body more and burn more calories.

How Many Calories Does Stairclimbing and Stepping Burn?

30 minutes of Stepping or Stairclimbing burns about 250 to 350 calories. [This is based on a 150-pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn extra calories; if you weigh less, you’ll burn fewer calories.]

How Does Stairclimbing and Stepping Help Weight Loss?

Repeatedly raising and lowering the body uses all the large muscles in the hips, butt and thighs. As a result, stepping combines calorie burning (which uses body fat as energy) with lower body sculpting. As body fat disappears, then the long, lean muscles underneath are revealed.

How Often Should I Workout For Optimum Weight Loss?

5 minutes at the lowest resistance level and work your way up to 20 minutes at this intensity, once a day.

20 minutes at a higher intensity, 3 or 4 times a week.

20 minutes alternating between a high and moderate intensity, 4 times a week.

How To Start Stepping and Stairclimbing?

Start slow and build on the intensity of the workout gradually. The key is to build on the intensity of the workout and not the duration. Watch how you stand – incorrect posture can cost 75 calories per session. Don’t lean on the rails, as this takes at least 20 percent of the strain from your body, so you burn less body fat.
