A stepper platform or an aerobic stepper is one of the most versatile gym props that you can use to perform various exercises other than the ones it is primarily used for.
Although you can only do some low-impact aerobic exercises, you are free to increase your speed and reps as desired.
Using this, you can also bid adieu to post-workout muscle soreness.
Aerobic stepper up-down
Get into a plank position and place the stepper right in front of you. Put your hands on the ground just near it.
Now keep your right hand on the stepper, followed by the left hand. Once done, put your right hand back on the ground and then the left one too.
Repeat this sequence in a fast-paced motion. Do at least 10 sets.
Another fun exercise you can do using a stepper is mountain climbers. It helps you balance your body when you are doing it.
Get into a plank pose and place your hands on the platform.
Now pull your right knee toward your chest and then immediately switch it bringing your left knee toward your chest.
Keep switching the legs as though you are running.
Lie on your back and place the stepper in front of your legs. Put your feet on it and place your hands beside you.
Tightening your glutes and core, gradually raise your hips toward the ceiling and then bring them down.
Repeat the up and down movements multiple times. This can help you tone your hamstrings and core.
Yes, you can even do burpees with a stepper. And believe us, this gym equipment makes it easier.
Begin by standing a little away from the stepper and perform a burpee by ensuring your head reaches close to it as you descend toward the floor. Place your hands on it as you drop.
Now stand and jump onto the stepper again. Repeat as desired.
Step-ups are the most common exercise you can do with a stepper platform.
Stand close to the platform and then keep your right foot on it. Then bring your left foot on the stepper platform.
Now put your right foot back on the ground, followed by the left foot.
Do multiple repetitions of this set of movements at high speed.
