Stair climbing machines build gluteal strength, providing overall stability to your body.
Your butt muscles, also known as your gluteals, can be exercised with weight machines that specifically target this area. As they are larger muscles, working out your butt muscles can help increase your metabolism and lose fat as well as giving you a toned bottom. Weight machines for your butt are designed so that they isolate your gluteals, and they can help reduce the risk of injury when compared to free weight exercises.
Building A Better Bottom
Butt exercise machines use weights to help build your gluteal muscles, providing lift and shape to the area. When your butt muscles are out of shape or there is too much fat accumulated in the area, your bottom can appear saggy and will begin to droop when there is more fat than muscle in the region. Working out your butt muscles with an exercise machine will lift and tone your gluteal muscles, giving your butt a rounded, attractive appearance. To reduce fat in the area, also engage in cardio exercise to lose fat overall - otherwise, your newly developed butt muscles will have a difficult time showing through the layer of fat on your bottom.
Your gluteal muscles are one of the largest muscles in your body, and building muscle in this area will help raise your metabolism, letting your body burn more calories more efficiently. The heavier the weight you use on a butt exercise machine, the greater the intensity of the exercise. High intensity butt machine exercises will build muscle faster, but be careful not to over-extend yourself. If you are not used to working out this region, start slowly to build up muscle strength and stamina. While you cannot spot reduce fat, muscle has a more compact appearance than fat does, so building up your gluteal muscles will make your butt look shapelier.
Your gluteal muscles help connect your lower body and core muscles, making them essential for overall balance and general stability. Your butt muscles are made up of three different gluteal muscles: gluteus maximum, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. The gluteus maximus and medius provide stability to your pelvis during any movement that uses your feet - including walking, squats, sitting and standing. If your butt muscles are weak, you are more likely to suffer lower body injuries because of insufficient support.
Power Push and Explosion
Your gluteal muscles provide the strength needed for movements such as jumping and running. Anything that requires explosive energy with your legs heavily engages your butt muscles. Butt exercise machines help build muscle strength in your gluteals by letting you use heavier weights more safely than you might otherwise be able to with free weights. A leg press machine can be used with both legs at once, or, to build more strength, to do alternate leg presses, where you exercise one leg at a time. Cable-based exercises can also let you do certain exercises, such as low-cable hip abductions and adductions, with heavier weights than you might otherwise be able to use. Both a leg press and a cable-exercise machine will build your gluteal and leg muscles, giving you more strength in your lower body as well as a toned tush and legs.
