Step up your Cardio!

If you are looking to get in the best cardio workout and want to work your entire lower half you should consider doing the step mill. The step mill is the moving stepper that you physically step up each individual step. The Step Mill targets your entire lower half, continuously working your calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes as it mimics a stepping motion.
Like jogging, stair-climbing torches some serious calories about 10 a minute, depending on your speed and strengthens your thighs, butt, and calves. But it goes even further, taking your legs and glutes through a full range of motion, which is crucial for engaging those muscles for a full round backside.
Using the step mill increases your heart rate as you can do many things like intervals, side steps, backwards, and double steps for a continuous glute shaping workout.
If you are looking to try out a great cardio program but don't know where to start, here is a great workout to try out next time your on the step mill!
- Warm up at a comfortable pace for about 5 minutes-
ncrease rate by 20 spm (steps per minute) for two minutes.
> Get off machine and do 20 push-ups.
> Resume StepMill for two minutes with an additional 20 spm.
> Get off machine and do 20 burpees.
> Resume StepMill for two minutes with an additional 10 spm.
> Get off machine and do 20 bodyweight squats.
> Resume StepMill at your fastest possible pace for one minute.
> Return to a steady StepMill pace for two to three minutes.
> Repeat the cycle once more.
> Finish with a cool down for 5 min.
Now your heart rate will be up, your body will be burning calories and you will have targeted many muscle groups !!
