Stairmaster Guide

Main Muscle: Quadriceps

  1. To begin, step onto the stairmaster and select the desired option from the menu. You can choose a manual setting, or you can select a program to run. Typically, you can enter your age and weight to estimate the amount of calories burned during exercise.
  2. Pump your legs up and down in an established rhythm, driving the pedals down but not all the way to the floor. It is recommended that you maintain your grip on the handles so that you don’t fall. The handles can be used to monitor your heart rate to help you stay at an appropriate intensity.
  3. Stairmasters offer convenience, cardiovascular benefits, and usually have less impact than running outside. They are typically much harder than other cardio equipment. A 150 lb person will typically burn over 300 calories in 30 minutes, compared to about 175 calories walking.

Nov 18, 2014 1:16 PM: This is my go to machine for cardio at the gym. I use it 3 times weekly for 30 minutes, and I am soaked every time. I usually burn around 400 calories. Guaranteed an intense and challenging workout every time!

Oct 10, 2012 4:33 PM: Love working out on this machine. I start sweating 10 minutes in, and it doesnt stop. I feel great on it, and i feel my quads aching after a few days of using it. 300 calories burned in 20 minutes.
