Do you live in the lower floors of our facilities? Do you have a lot of thing to do and feel sorry not being able to go to the gym to practice some physical activities? Just imagine that the elevator has never been invented and get into the habit to go up and down the stairs by foot.
The benefits of taking the stairs, instead of the elevator, are so many that they are even used in some workout. The good news is that you can find stairs everywhere, and freely use them to practice some sport.
Doctors and other experts have been recommending quitting taking the elevator for a long time, but until today nobody has made it clear how and how many steps to climb.
Two flights. Yes, you got it right, just two flights of stairs a day will make you lose three kilos of body weight in a year.
This is the best natural exercise possible. It would not be a waste of your time, but more importantly of your health.
Climbing steps helps improve the tone of the tissues and different studies have proven that going up the stairs for sixty seconds straight, a decrease of the whole-body fat occurs.
The intensity of the activity, going up or down, is almost the same. Legs, glutes and quadriceps work when we go up. Instead, when we go down, only quadriceps work, they must control the gravitational force of the body.
For this reason, it would be better to combine both activities, in order to tone every muscle and burning fat in the best way possible.
Just take the stairs at least two times a week and you will notice the results.
Finally, not to be underestimate, giving up the elevator will increase the energy saving both individual and collective.
