Calories burnt during stair climbing


Climbing stairs is a great way of burning calories. Get on the stepper at the gym or you can just go to a stadium and climb for 30 minutes. Great for cardio, so a stronger heart, well toned legs and glutes.

If you cant spend 30 minutes at stretch, then try to accumulate several minutes over the course of the day at your work place, at the mall or in your apartment.

30 minutes of stair climbing=216 calories burnt(according to a pedometer). Wow!! I did not know I was burning so much daily. Its great news for me.

  1. Hello Maam,

    I am a working professional and my work involves sitting on computer the whole day.
    It does not involve any physical activity.
    Though I always climb stairs but I hardly get time to exercise.
    I also do not eat much fried and sweet stuffs.

    My query is that my weight is stable. It does not increase. But it does not decrease either.

    Please tell me what diet should I follow and some basic exercise I should do to reduce my weight.


  2. Hi Sanjana

I am alos trying to eat more raw veggies like three peppers, avocado, baby spinach and half cooked mixed veggies, chicken is the only meat I am eating.
    My aim is to reduce weight and maintain healthy body, is this attempt helping ? Please let me know if Im wasting my precious time
