In this and other scenarios, the best stepper machines can help you experience the benefits of regular low impact exercise without commuting back and forth to the gym.
Who is a stepper machine suitable for?
The type of workouts that take advantage of stepper machine benefits mean they are suitable for almost everyone. But there are circumstances when they may be an especially good choice for certain people:
- Those that want to work out at home but have limited space in which to store exercise equipment
- People with lower body joint injuries or weaknesses
- Someone that is looking to tone their leg muscles without them becoming larger
- A person preparing for a climbing event that isn’t able to get away from home to train often enough
Stepper machine benefits
As mentioned earlier, the major muscles worked by a stepper machine are those in the legs. The quads, hamstrings, calves, glutes and hips all get a workout. The nature of the exercise is more suitable to toning muscle than building it – so don’t worry about getting bulky legs! To grow large muscles in the legs you need to perform over-loaded weight exercises in low reps, supplemented with a high calorie, protein rich diet. The high volume non-stop action of the stepper machine will not do this.
Improves cardiovascular endurance and health
Working out on a stepper machine will certainly work up a sweat. The pace at which you step is a determining factor on how much of a cardiovascular or resistance based exercise it is. The faster you move the more it becomes cardiovascular, while moving slower at higher tension levels makes it a more resistance exercise.
Cardiovascular exercise improves the function of your heart and lungs. Making them better at delivering oxygen to your muscles. This is a combination of two major factors. The fist being the heart becoming stronger and being able to pump more blood from a single heartbeat. The second is an increase in the lungs capacity, taking in more oxygen from a single breath, and then becoming more efficient at taking the oxygen out of the air and transferring into the blood.
The stepper machine will get your heart beating harder and breathing heavier. Doing this more often increases your cardiovascular fitness. It’s recommended that a person gets 30 minutes exercise 5 times a week and this machine is a great way to do so.
Low impact on joints
A stepper machine is a very low impact way to exercise. Think of the impact on you joints when you bounce around in an aerobics class, or when you run or jog. You are in constant contact with the steps which means your body weight is always supported. This makes working out on a stepper a great option for those recovering from injury or with pre-existing joint problems.
