Climbing Stairs is Good for Your Heart

News
According to a study published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism, climbing stairs for a few minutes at short intervals during the day can improve the health of one’s heart. For the study, the researchers observed two groups. While one group was told not to exercise, the other was asked to climb a three-flight stair well three times a day, which was broken down by one to four hours of recovery. This group was asked to climb stairs for over six weeks and then the researchers compared their fitness levels to the non-exercising group. After the study, the researchers concluded that the group that climbed stairs was not only fitter but also generated more power during a maximal cycling test.
