Last Sunday, I finally made a huge mistake: I ate two big scoops of my favorite ice cream, Blue Bell Mint Chocolate Chip Ice cream.
Guess what happened? I had to pay for the consequence.. Monday morning, the first thing I did was doing cardio using StairMaster machine. (picture on the right)
What did I do? I climbed the stairs for 40 minutes with level 12. Is it easy? Try it. I finished with 5 miles and burned about 500 kcal.
Was my favorite ice cream worth to try? Heck yea :) But I won't do it again because I know better. I'm training for something very important to me and eating my favorite ice cream might make me happy for 5 minutes but it wouldn't last long. Staying fit requires discipline.
Here are few benefits of StairMaster workout:
- Increase your cardiovascular workout
- Burn calories
- Improve muscle conditioning in your legs and buttocks
- Improve balance
