Guidelines and precautions for using staircase machines


The staircase machine, a magical fitness equipment, is not unfamiliar. It cleverly simulates the daily movement of climbing stairs, allowing people to enjoy the benefits of hiking and climbing stairs. So now let's explore together how to use a staircase machine to make it more comprehensive and outstanding!

Let's learn how to use a staircase machine together:

1.When you first step onto the staircase, please stand on it and then select the desired option in the menu bar. Many staircases offer manual setting modes, and of course, you can also choose a preset program for running exercises. Usually, you only need to enter your age and weight to estimate the amount of calories burned during exercise.

2. You need to move your legs up and down at a specific rhythm to drive the pedals down, but be sure to avoid falling directly to the ground. To ensure safety, it is recommended that you always hold the handle tightly to stabilize your body when necessary. At the same time, the handle can also be used for real-time monitoring of heart rate, helping you maintain appropriate exercise intensity.

3. The staircase machine has the characteristics of convenience and ease of use, which not only helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases, but also has less impact compared to outdoor jogging. However, compared to other aerobic devices, the difficulty of a staircase machine is relatively higher. For example, a person weighing 68 kilograms can burn over 300 calories in half an hour of exercise, while walking can only burn about 175 calories.

While enjoying the convenience brought by the staircase machine, we also need to pay attention to the following usage instructions:

1.During the process of stepping down, do not make the knee joint excessively stiff or locked, and leave a certain amount of space for movement.

2. If your muscle strength is relatively weak, it is recommended to temporarily postpone the use of the stepper.

3. If you have poor coordination and control abilities, it is recommended to first engage in adaptive exercises, such as fixed bicycle training.

4. Imported equipment usually has a large volume. If the trainer is too short in stature, they should not be forcibly used to avoid unnecessary damage.

Although stair climbers may cause less damage to the knees compared to outdoor climbing, treadmills, etc., caution should still be exercised when using them for individuals who have experienced knee injuries or insufficient leg strength.

6. If you want to exercise your body and improve your cardiovascular function through the staircase machine, it is recommended to use it for about 20 minutes each time; If you expect to achieve good weight loss results, it needs to be extended to 30-40 minutes. In general, the correct usage time of the staircase machine should not be less than 20 minutes. No matter what equipment is used, it is necessary to act according to one's abilities to avoid excessive fatigue and damage.

7. When using the staircase machine, please keep your chest straight and head up, avoiding the bad posture of hunching and bending with your head down.

During the exercise process, there is no need to excessively pursue speed or duration. If you feel exhausted, you may want to reduce your exercise speed to the lowest gear and continue exercising persistently.
