Loctek mini stair stepper is a cardio workout and target to make your leg muscles have more stamina and can get your heart rate up then any form of exercise. Also the machine has a LCD display that can check your total count, time, calories burned, and rep count
Regular step machines are much larger and typically have a waist height console in front of you similar to a treadmill.
They also have handles and may include features such as built-in workouts with varying resistance, workout stats and entertainment features.
However, they are also much more expensive, are not easily portable and take up space in your home or garage.
Mini steppers, on the other hand, allow you to get similar benefits for a much smaller price and in a smaller package too.
Mini steppers are the ideal size for a home gym, taking up hardly any space and being really easy to move around.
What are the Different Kinds of Mini Steppers?
There are two different kinds, the standard mini stepper which uses a straight up and down motion, and the twist mini stepper which twists out to the side slightly on the downward motion in order to utilize more of your glutes.
Both can make for an awesome workout but if your knees aren’t ship shape you may want to pass on the twisting options as the twisting action will likely make things worse.
Is it Worth Adding a Mini Stepper to My Home Gym?
It depends on what your goals are.
A mini stepper won’t add muscle or contribute significantly to sculpting by itself. It needs to be used with a combination of other resistance exercises to achieve any significant muscular improvements.
However, a mini stepper is an excellent way of incorporating low-impact cardio and muscle toning into your exercise regime while working out a range of muscles in your legs and core.
When set on a high resistance, a mini stepper can make for an intense leg workout!
When combined with resistance bands, your upper body can also get in on the action.
If you don’t have any other cardio machines in your home gym set up, the mini stepper could be a great addition due to its compact, convenient size, very low price point, and low impact.
What Should I Look for When Choosing My Mini Stepper?
There are few things to think about when choosing the best mini stepper machine for your needs:
Whether the resistance is adjustable – this is a pretty key part of choosing the best mini stepper, but oddly enough, not many mini steppers actually have adjustable resistance. You can adjust how hard you work by altering your style but it still could be a little luck of the draw as to whether you get the right amount of resistance for your needs if you purchase a machine without adjustment options.
Note that heavier people will find harder resistance levels more easy than lighter people as your body weight helps to push the pedals down!
Movement of the pedals – do you want to get some twisting action in there or would you rather stick to the straight forward up-down motion? Also, do you want your feet to stay flat, cycle slightly, or your heel to drop each time you depress the pedal? These are all important questions and you’ll want to try out the different options to decide what you like.
Step height – the height of the step determines the range of motion of your leg and consequently the range of muscles you use. The higher the step height the harder the workout. Some mini steppers that don’t have adjustable resistance do have adjustable step height which is a good compromise.
Weight limit – the more expensive mini steppers can cope with a huge amount of weight, but the more budget options hover around the 220 lbs mark so you’ll want to make sure you get a mini stepper that works for your body weight.
The inclusion of resistance bands – this is more a convenience factor than a deal breaker as you can add in your own resistance bands easily enough. But if you don’t have any, it’s a nice addition to the machine as it converts it from a lower body workout to a whole body workout.
Warranty – this can be a deal breaker. Basically, you want the machine with the longest warranty possible as this is a fairly clear indication of the quality.
How Can I Stay Motivated and Inspired on My Mini Stepper?
One of the best ways to stay motivated is you mix it up and keep your workouts interesting so that you don’t get bored.
Doing a workout on your mini stepper doesn’t have to mean that you get on the machine and grind away relentlessly without combining any other exercises into the mix.
Using resistance bands or light weights at the same time as using your mini stepper gives the upper body a workout at the same time.
Some mini steppers come with resistance bands attached, but if yours doesn’t, there’s no reason why you can’t add your own.
Alternatively, try treating your mini stepper workout like circuit training and hop on and off every few minutes, interspersing your stepping with resistance bands or body weight exercises.
The workout will be more intense and you’ll stay interested.
And finally, don’t forget to check out Youtube if you need some more ideas or for someone to yell at you!
Hopefully, this article has set you up with all the necessary knowledge to choose your best mini stepper for your home workouts.
Remember that everybody’s different so you’ll need to be clear on your preferences before you commit. It’s highly recommended to try out some different models first before purchasing.
