I moved last year and my stairmaster did not make the cut when I was packing. I regret this decision. its hard to say how the stair master would apply to running, but for indoor skimo training I would be using it. stair climbers enable zero-impact uphill type exercise that can be done at a feverish pace( Z4/Z5).
I found a decent price for a second hand stairmaster 4000 pt, which is a kind of an “advanced” stepper. You can see how it works here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_4djaNyKEE
I have never used one and I was wondering if it could be a decent alternative to the “escalator type” of stairmaster in terms of training effect for uphill, or if it would just be a waste of money.
Any feedback is appreciated!
