neophyte might seem the same movement but in reality it is not so !!
The stepper was born in America in 1986 and today is one of the tools used to keep fit and lose weight. In the gym and at home is a simple tool to use.
This is a tool much appreciated especially by practitioners gyms women because it is widespread misinformation that makes work much the buttocks, toning and making them more aesthetically pleasing
This tool should simulate the act of climbing stairs but, in this regard, the biomechanics of the climb of the stairs is really different from that on the stepper.
discover the why together!
We start from the movement, and then by 'action that has the gluteus:
aerobic vs. anaerobic Effort
The aerobic effort can not in any way affect heavily on the trophism of such a muscle - with the exception the initial transition from a state of total inactivity in an aerobic activity - need - to understand the right move, imagine the exercise of lunge walk
2- movement Action
Another interesting thing is the the fact that the foot does not grip on the step of pulling up the body, as it happens up a flight of stairs, but performs a lunge and floating movement that can be more or less difficult depending on the intensity of the workout. It is the weight of the body that get off the foot support, while the stairs are the legs that push the upper body to the next step.
By definition, these are hip extensors that bring the thigh from a flexed position to the extension. Unfortunately
to the gym, this' biomechanical action is blandly reported. In fact
on STEPPER, the thigh never comes to exceed the horizontal line of the pelvis and the vertical axis, performing only a marginal movement activation of the gluteus maximus.
. In addition, 90% of practicing the activities of stepper puts his hands on the side braces, which are not made to bear but to maintain balance in those rooms for the first time.
Using the arms as a support greatly reduces the floatation work and the angle of the buttocks work.
