Why You Should Do A Stairmaster Workout?

Here are some incredible benefits of Stairmaster workouts:

  • Serious caloric and fat burn
  • Afterburn effect
  • Combines resistance and HIIT cardio training into one workout
  • Engaging and fun!

How Long Should A Beginner Use The Stairmaster?

Oh, the Stairmaster.

I will never forget the first time I used this machine as an ambitious beginner.

Stairmaster workouts can get pretty intense.

As a beginner, you shouldn’t push too far, or too fast.

Like any other new form of exercise, you will slowly build strength and endurance.

So, start small, by doing 10-15 minutes.

Eventually, you will be able to increase the intensity and duration of your Stairmaster workouts!

Is 20 Minutes Of Stairmaster Enough?

As a beginner, 20 minutes of Stairmaster is more than enough!

Your heart rate will be elevated throughout the entire workout which makes 20 minutes perfect for maximizing results!

Can You Get A Good Workout From Stairmaster?

Stairmaster workouts are some of the most effective ways to workout.

That’s because Stairmaster workouts provide a good cardio and resistance workout at the same time.

They require greater muscle recruitment paired with a much bigger cardiovascular commitment.

Your glutes, hamstrings, and quads work on pulling your body weight up, while your calf muscles lift and stabilize as you move forward.

This takes a tremendous amount of effort!

So the short answer to this question is…absolutely yes you can get a good workout from Stairmaster!
