    Does stairmaster work?

    Does the stairmaster help build legs and calves? Or is it just designed to burn off calories and lose fat? And what muscles does the stairmaster work?

    It's a great machine for cardio. I'd do proper weight lifting for legs though.

    Good cardio 1 min a cardio workout on top speed raises ur hr like mad

    To build muscle on legs just do squats leg pushing exercises and stiff leg deadlifts and make sure you have low bf% so you can show em off:-)
