Would stair climbing help make my chicken legs bigger and butt? If so how long should i do this for a day?
Stair Climbing is hard as it is both aerobic and anaerobic…like skiing.
During anaerobic activities, fat burning shuts down because it’s very intense and you could never get enough oxygen to process fat cells. Your body has to use blood sugar, which is why you need to eat about two hours before so you get enough energy.
You could have strong quads (front of the thighs), hamstrings (back of the thighs) gluteus (buttocks) and calves muscles if you do weight training (door squats, lunges, leg extensions, butt/hip extension, pelvic lifts, heel raises…) but lack cardiovascular health and stamina if you’re not doing enough aerobics.
You could have a strong cardiovascular system (heart, lungs, circulatory system) if you’re doing a lot of cardio but lack the muscle mass to be able to lift your whole body up each step easily if you do not do enough weight training.
Once you get enough muscle mass in your legs and butt with weight training (takes 2 to 3 months) AND you get a good cardiovascular system doing a lot of aerobics (also takes a couple of months), then you’re ready to combine the two and climb stairs, as a way to multitasking and maintain muscle mass (use it or lose it) and cardiovascular health.
I would not say to a person with chicken legs and butt…”Go skiing”. I would say, do weight training and aerobics for 3 months, and then go skiing…or walk up the Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building.
