Health Tip: Step Training

Tips for safe practice

(HealthDay News) -- Step training is a great way to burn calories and strengthen muscles and bones.

The American Council on Exercise offers these tips:

  • Make sure you step with your entire foot on the platform, with no portion hanging off the edge.
  • When you use the floor, step close to the platform.
  • Step softly. Pounding your feet could harm joints.
  • Keep your eyes on the platform to avoid a misstep.
  • Don't use hand weights, which increase your risk of injury and aren't beneficial.
