The StairMaster is a great way to get cardio in and work up a serious sweat! Some may be intimidated by it and some may hate it, but you should definitely give it another try with this workout! I used to hate the StairMaster and couldn’t make it longer than 2 minutes when I first tried. I started doing longer and longer workouts to build up my stamina. Now it’s my favorite form of cardio!
I normally do this workout as a warm-up before leg day. It’s great because you can go through the workout as many times as you’d like depending on how long you want to workout for! I usually go through it once or twice as a warmup.
I put a range of speeds for most of the different exercises. Your speed depends on your skill level and should be a framework to go by, not something you need to stick to exactly. For me, normal walking speed is at least 10 or above but that won’t be the same for a beginner.
Give it a try next time you’re at the gym!
