More Results In Half The Steps

People who are looking to keep their metabolic motor running for continuous calorie burning should consider the results of a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. Penn State scientists found that when you bound up a flight of stairs two at a time you end up burning more calories than you would taking the usual step by step approach.

True Strength Moment: Choosing the stairs instead of an elevator is a small, simple technique you can apply to help beat back winter weight gain. Taking two steps at a time increases speed and power, resulting in greater effort and enhanced calorie burning results. Getting to your destination sooner is a bonus. Next step: walk your close-by errands and carry what you buy home.
