Did you know that by adding stair climbing to your workout routine can improve your fitness and strength faster. There are many benefits to stair climbing:
“Stair Climbing Benefits
Walking can yield significant benefits such as improved sleep, improved mood and stronger benefits, and taking the stairs has further benefits beyond these:
Burn more calories – According to MyFitnessPal, walking up stairs burns 500 calories in 55 minutes, compared to 134 minutes for a brisk walk (for a person weighing 150lbs). Therefore adding a few staircases into your walk can cut down the time you need to exercise for.
Strength – Climbing stairs puts additional strain on your muscles in order to lift your weight up on to each successive step. This is particularly beneficial on your quads and glutes.
Improves cardio and core – Raising your heart rate by taking the stairs is a great cardio workout which will improve your general fitness. The balance and stability required to get up the stairs, especially once you are tired also helps to strengthen your core.” -500 Cal Team @ 500caloriefitness.com
