Keeping fit and losing weight is not the prerogative of those who go to the gym, but there are some very convenient tools that you can use at home and that still allow you to achieve excellent goals. 

One of these is the step :

It was born in the United States but quickly spread to Italy, where today it is appreciated by many people. But what specifically is it for and how does it work?

What is step

The step is a fun aerobic activity that can be done using a platform about 40 centimeters wide, for one meter. 

It simulates the stairs. In fact, to get the advantages, it will be necessary to go up and down repeatedly, following a constant rhythm, perhaps in time to music. 

In simpler words, it is an inexpensive tool that acts as a step and is also fun to use.

Step: what is it for

There are several benefits offered by constant use of the step

First, I recommend it for those who have suffered an injury and need to do rehabilitation.

In fact, the activity of going up and down stairs frequently is beneficial when you want to strengthen the legs, calves, thighs and buttocks.

The step also serves to lose weight and because it allows you to burn many calories. It is used to train while having fun.

In fact, even if it is tiring, it allows you to do some physical movement (even at home) to the rhythm of your favorite songs, both alone and in company.

It is also useful for increasing heart health and for regaining general fitness.

 

The rules for using it well

step lesson is the simplest one can imagine, even if it requires a certain amount of effort.

 Just keep your back straight and simulate a continuous movement of going up and down the stairs.

Better to choose a gradual training program , carrying out three weekly sessions lasting about 40 minutes, of which the first five warm up at a low pace and with a very light load, 30 minutes intense and the last five cool down at a low pace.

 However, those who are not trained should not overdo it and start doing steps for only 15 minutes at a time.
