The Stairclimber Workout Is Crazyyyy!!!

Whoa! I can feel my abs being worked out already? After three minutes? I think I have found a new friend at the gym; the stairclimber. After 5 minutes I was already sweating and I was beginning to feel the muscles in my thighs, calves and butt being worked on. Wow! I'm in love ;-). Why didn't I use this machine earlier?

Anyways, I lasted on the machine for only 7mins (lol!) and I was off to do thirty minutes on the exercise bike where I rode a 7k. Then it was off to kettlebell exercises and bicep curls as well as shoulder extensions. But seriously, I'm gonna try doing at least 20minutes on the stairclimber twice a week.

Yesterday's workout was cool. I feel a bit sore in my arms though (the stairclimber has handles that work out the arms too). However I'm still working on better dinner choices. Some of you guys suggested that I try a salad for dinner and I think that's what I'm gonna do.

As  I sign off, I would like to thank all my new followers for joining me on my journey for good health. I hope I'm able to share experiences and thoughts that you'd find insightful.

Have a great weekend.


  1. That is so amazing! I still haven't tried that one - I think I need to enroll myself in a gym first. :)

    I am happy at how January is unfolding for you. I still am on "vacation," it seems; am still so lazy!

  2. I just love the way you taking it easy & a step @ a time,"goal getter" GO GIRL!!!

  3. The stairmaster js a killer!!! I don't do it every time I go to the gym (i go twice a week) cause it seriously kicks my butt!!!

    After last nights food binge, I will be doing some stair time this morning!!

  4. Thanks for following my blog! Can't wait to get caught-up on your journey. :)

  5. Great job! I have anxiety when I go to the gym, so I haven't been there in a few years. I don't mind starting off with walking at home on my treadmill. It will work for the time being.

  6. Ah the stairmaster. Personally I hate it, it's the toughest thing to do in the gym but it gives such a great workout for your lower body!!

    I'm a new follower of yours. I wish you all the luck on your weight loss!!


  7. 20 minutes!? You are the stairmaster! YEah I died around 7 minutes too. :( I do my own version at home and at work by climbing the stairs.

  8. Hi there! Saw you were a new follower for me so I stopped over to follow you as well. Great job on the stairmaster! You'll soon learn that I'm a proponent of exercise and the more the better! Looking forward to getting to know you!

  9. I LOVE the stairclimber aka suicide. When I first started I could only do 10 minutes. Every time I went to the gym I increased my time by 5 minutes working my way up to 30 minutes. I ususally do 30 minutes. A few months a go a started working my way to an hour ( just to say that I did it). This is THE BEST piece of cardio in my opinion. AMAZING WORK for jumping on the bandwagon, your legs are going to be super sexy in no time!

  10. I tagged you in this post!
