Climbing the stairs is a workout option that has been around for quite a long time. In fact, it is still used by some athletics teams, jogging up and downstairs for extended periods to build their own leg strength, all while getting a highly beneficial cardio exercise. However, while just going up and down the stairs is effective in and of itself, the risk of slipping down can be quite dangerous, especially when you’re sweating on the staircases and running through it at high speeds. Furthermore, you’d be directly in the way of anyone who needs to use the staircase. For large, public stairs, you’d be actively looking to get bumped down by someone going down.
Be that as it may, stair climbing is still a highly effective exercise, hence gym equipment developers have come up with an elegant solution to this problem in the Stairmaster. The Stairmaster has been in the market since the 80s, but it has improved over time and has become the aerobic exercise machine staple it is today. It allows you to simulate the experience of climbing the stairs in aerobic motion without facing the downsides you otherwise would on a real staircase. It is a machine that is simply amazing at helping you do what it’s made to help you do and is also good for building leg muscles, particularly those in the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and glute areas. This machine may not seem like much at first glance, but it is simply highly efficient and effective in general.
