Want to get more from your fitness equipment? If your workout has reached a plateau and you are no longer seeing desired results you need to add some resistance to your routine. Did you know that running up stairs can increase your calorific burn rate by as much as 50%? If you work out on a cross trainer you can mimic this stair climbing action by ramping up the resistance. It may feel like you are wading through quick sand, but the demanding routine is certainly worth it.
By raising the resistance levels you force your body to fight harder against gravity and this will only have a beneficial effect on those thighs. Don’t be afraid to really set a high level of resistance; you don’t need to work out at this rate for long before you start seeing the effects.
