Step Ups


1. Stand behind a 15-inch platform or step (holding a pair of dumbbells – optional).

2. Place the right foot on the step, transfer the weight to the heel and push into the heel to come onto the step.

3. Concentrate on only using the right leg, keeping the left leg active only for balance.

4. Slowly step back down and repeat all reps on the right leg before switching to the left.

5. Perform 1 to 3 sets of 10 to 16 reps according to your fitness level and goals.
