The HIIT UBE by StairMaster is an upper body ergometer which utilizes fan generated resistance for High Intensity Interval Training, cardiovascular workouts, strength conditioning, and rehabilitation. Unlike lower body ergometers (such as exercise bikes) which employ the legs as the primary driver for movement, upper body ergometers utilize the arms, shoulders, and upper back in a pedaling motion, much like using a bicycle with your hands. In physical therapy, an upper body ergometer, or UBE as it is commonly known, can be used to improve upper extremity strength and endurance, and to improve the overall work-generating capacity of your arm muscles.
A UBE can also be beneficial for working through an upper extremity injury during rehabilitation. When used during High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), the UBE will make your heart pound, lungs burn, and muscles scream as you push yourself to the limit. While the hand pedals activate and challenge the chest, shoulders, back, arms and core muscles, the body relies on the legs for stability and strength. HIIT training on an upper body ergometer gives new meaning to discipline and perseverance for even the most conditioned of athletes.
