The effect of stair-ascent activity exercise on body fat and muscle mass in university students

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of stair-ascent activity exercises program on body fat and body mass, which is a body composed of university students, and to improve the physical health of university students. The result of the study showed that the body fat mass of university students participating in the stair-ascent activity exercises program showed a significant difference according to the time. That is, the longer the stair-ascent activity exercises program Period of body fat was found to exhibit a significant decrease. In addition, there was a significant difference in the muscle mass of university students participating in the stair-ascent activity exercises program. That is, the longer the stair-ascent activity exercises program application period was also seen as a significant increase in muscle mass. The results of this study showed that the stair-ascent activity exercises program for university students had a positive effect on improvement of body composition by decreasing body fat and increasing muscle mass. Therefore, it is thought that the stair-ascent activity exercises program should be actively utilized as a nursing intervention program that maintains and promotes the health of university students and the general public. It is also fodder-depth research will be needed on how to continue to enforce exercise.
