Escalate 550CE2 Benefits
Using the Escalate 550CE2 provides benefits from head to toe. If you’re normally a runner or walker, stair climbing can be a good change of pace in your exercise regimen.
1. Aerobic conditioning
Stair climbing strengthens the heart and lungs — the keys to aerobic fitness. Stronger lungs allow you to breathe in more oxygen, and a healthier heart can pump oxygen-rich blood more efficiently to all your muscles and organs.
2. Calorie burning
the Escalate 550CE2 is an efficient and effective tool in losing weight or managing your current weight. A half-hour workout on the stepping machine can burn anywhere from 180 calories to 260 calories — or more — depending on your body weight and intensity of the workout.
A faster “climb” will burn more calories than a slower session. A 180-pound person tends to burn more calories than a 125-pound person doing the same workout.
3. Core muscle strength
Because using a stepper machine requires you to keep your balance the entire time you’re climbing and pumping your legs, it also gives your core muscles a workout. Stronger core muscles help improve posture, prevent lower back pain, and reduce the risk of injury.
4. Healthier bones
Weight-bearing exercises, such as climbing stairs, can help reduce your risk for osteoporosis, and treat it if you already have it. Bones are living tissue, and climbing stairs helps increase bone mass. This is especially important as you get older, because natural bone loss tends to increase as you age.
5. Stronger quadriceps
The quadriceps femoris is a group of four muscles in the front of the thigh. These muscles are essential for walking, running, and just standing up from a sitting position. The quads extend or straighten the knee, so each time you push off from one step to the next you’re strengthening these large, important muscles.
6. Stronger hamstrings
The hamstrings are the three muscles in the back of the thigh that work in conjunction with the quads. They help bend the knee, so they’re also critical to walking, running, and sitting down. Each time you bend your knee to take another step up, the hamstrings are doing much of the work.
7. Stronger calves
Like the other muscles in your legs, your calves allow you to run, walk, and jump, while also being essential to maintaining your balance while standing. Your calves contract every time you lift your heel to take a step.
When climbing, whether it’s on the Escalate 550CE2, your front steps, or up a hill, your calves have to work hard to keep lifting your heels step after step.
8. Stronger glutes
The gluteus maximus muscles are located in the buttocks, and are some of the strongest muscles in the body. Their main function is to move the hips and thighs, so climbing stairs is a task that relies heavily on strong glutes.
9. Knee pain relief
Strengthening the knee reduces stress on the joint, which can help reduce pain if you have osteoarthritis. Using the Escalate 550CE2 is considered low-impact exercise compared with the pounding, high-impact consequences of running on a hard surface.
10. Positive vibes
As you climb stairs your body releases endorphins, which are “feel-good” brain chemicals that boost your mood and reduce your stress levels. You may feel a little exhausted at the end of the Escalate 550CE2 workout, but you should feel good about the work you put in.
Like treadmills, the Escalate 550CE2 has a variety of settings to mix up your workouts. You can program the number of minutes you want to exercise. So if you’re just starting out, you can set the machine to go for 5 or 10 minutes and work up from there.
12. It’s only up from here
Unlike climbing an actual staircase, which requires a return walk down the stairs, the Escalate 550CE2 keeps you moving up all the time. This is helpful because walking down stairs is much tougher on your knees. The tissue and fluid you use as “brakes” take a greater toll on the joints with every downward step.
