Stairmaster v. Stepmill
A search turned up nothing.
Is there an effective difference between the Stairmaster and stepmill?
The reason I ask is that I don't have access to a stepmill right now. It seems to me that with the same weight and same time, the stepmill should be easier, but I don't know for sure.I am a highly trained professional and can find my :: expletive deleted:: with either hand in various light conditions.

I ask because if you are using it just to train while ON the job I think the difference wouldn't effect you too much because of your everyday interaction with heavy stuff and walking with heavy stuff. However the stepmill will beat the stairmaster when training for a test, I think youd be alright either way, but nothing beats the specificity.

The functionality of the stepmaster is lacking. It does not have much of a real world applicability. With the stepmill, its a much more real movement.
Stepmill is a better choice, large building with real stairs are even better.

The stepmill is by far better than the stairmaster. We have two of them at the FD. It is almost relentless and cruel to say the least. You can not "cheat" on the stepmill because you perform a true stepping motion.
