Our body does not cooperate when we suddenly try to run or climb stairs without previously conditioning our body.
An inactive and sedentary lifestyle may cause a lot of issues for us. One basic activity, which is a heavy challenge to a lot of people today, is climbing a flight of stairs. Climbing stairs requires a very fundamental level of strength and flexibility in the lower body but it is alarming to see that a lot of people, even middle-aged, struggle to climb stairs these days, resulting in joint pain or going out of breath.
Inactivity and lack of exercise are the main reasons for this. Our body does not cooperate when we suddenly try to run or climb stairs without previously conditioning our body to do it. However, experts say that we can get rid of this disadvantage by incorporating simple exercises in our daily lives. Nupur Patil, a nutritionist, said, “Exercises like brisk walking and jogging can be done daily. It helps in improving our heart health. The muscles in the legs become stronger. Increased stamina will make sure you do not run out of breath while climbing stairs and stronger legs will ensure no pain in the limbs.”
Our legs become more balanced if we perform exercises like folding, stretching, and prolonged standing on one leg. As a result, we don’t stumble while climbing the stairs. Try out the following exercises to climb stairs better.
