Instead of having one session once a week try 30 min sessions 3 times a week. It will help you more than 1 session per week.

You should do some research on flat feet, and I think you'll see that it's not really anything to concern yourself with. I have rather flat feet myself, and have never noticed a problem except when others tell me I should deal with my flat feet. In fact, if you start looking into the research a bit, you won't find any smoking guns that indicate being flat ...

Yes, i think that you can definitely do it. But what you need to use is some good shoes for it. The kind that makes your heels pretty up from the floor. Good for your feet and your back too.

Your friends are idiots. (So are mine. That's not really a dig.) That said, as other posters have said, make sure you're doing it right. Don't let your knees cave inwards as you put pressure on the lead foot. keep the weight over that lead foot. That should be about it. (That said, be smart.

As with any form of exercise, it is possible to accrue injury by doing it incorrectly. For stair-climbing, the key to avoiding knee strain is to keep your body over your knee while ascending. When going up a step, place your foot on the step, shift your weight over it, and then push up. Odds are you're already doing it, since climbing with your weight ...

Nonetheless you might want to consider the same supplemental excercises for the thighs that e.g. joggers or cyclist do, such as stretching thighs or massaging with a blackroll This will prevent the musculature from becoming stiff and avoid unnecesarry ...
