Stepper for exercise



Recommended Posts

I have one! Its very effective but I can't use it for long periods yet bc it destroys my muscles lol. It's a lot harder than it looks if youre like me who isn't used to working out. If you are, you'll love it!

Nothing really wrong with a stepper, but it's a one-dimensional machine. Personally, I'd recommend a treadmill with an incline function (or just walking/running outside). Aside from the overall health benefits of walking on flat land / no incline, if you want to activate your glutes in particular, a steep incline will actually do that better than the stepper.

Thank you so much for this advice. I have decided on a treadmill and look forward to walking outside in spring as well!

Does anyone use a stepper? Looking to strengthen butt and legs for better ambulation. Surgery date was 11/8/22.

I do! I got it from Amazon! It's the Sunny brand w/resistance bands! It cost mr about $60 on sale! It was hard at first but since losing weight it has gotten so much easier and makes my leg muscles and arms feel so good! It's what I'll do if I can't make it to the gym! Holds up to 250lbs and I was so scared I would be too heavy for it but as I kept losing weight, 250lbs came and went! I hope you get one and I hope you love it!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
