Stepping Your Workout Up a Notch Burns More Calories
Step Aerobics was introduced around 1989 and has rapidly become a fitness staple for many. As the name indicates, step aerobics is different from other forms of aerobic exercise due to its use of a stepping platform over which exercise moves are performed in combinations that range from basic to complex. Stepping up and down works the hamstrings, quadriceps, and gluteals, while the contestant movement of the class elevates the heart rate. It is estimated that step aerobics can burn as many as 35% more calories than running alone because the body is being constantly dead lifted over the bench. So, if you suffer from aerobic boredom, it may be time to give step aerobics a try.
