Stair Exercises
If you know someone who is overweight and trying to shed a few pounds, chances are they have been told to use the stairs more frequently for physical activity related weight loss; and if you’re a personal trainer, you’ve likely been the one to make the recommendation. The stairs are a simple physiological challenge to the body based upon the laws of physics. Stairs combine vertical and horizontal displacement, thereby increasing the force demand beyond normal horizontal locomotion. Stair climbing’s positive contribution to weight loss explains the popularity of the Stairclimber machines in the 90’s and although the elliptical trainer has since replaced many of the traditional Stairclimbers, they are still commonplace in most gyms/fitness facilities.
