Well, think of it like this: Do you "feel it" in your butt when you are climbing stairs? I suppose everyone climbs stairs a little differently. Some might use their butt more than their upper legs to lift themselves up. But as long as you are feeling it in the muscles, its working. The general idea of exercising is this: If your muscle feels fatigued after about 10 to 12 reps, it's working you out in a healthy way. More input from FAQ Farmers: * I've heard yes. It is also good for toning calf muscles and hamstrings. Squats are also a good buttock exercise.

Does climbing stairs for exercise affect the knees of old women?

Climbing stairs is a very good work out! If you do not have very strong knee joints, I would suggest taking something like cod liver oil. This is very good for keeping strong healthy joints. Keep climbing stairs, and the more you do, the easier they will become. (Try not to over-do it though!) =) Alex, 17. Older people should get an evaluation from their physician and fitness trainer to make sure that they are ready to take up stair climbing as an exercise. This is particularly important for people who have been sedentary or have had injuries previously. Start with short sessions of stair climbing and gradually increase the duration and intensity as the muscles and joints get more conditioned. -Eliza8
