#WednesdayWorkout – Step Ups

Step Ups

  1. One foot starts on the box, while the other foot is on the ground.
  2. Keep your hips back so your knee starts in line with or behind your toe that is on the box.
  3. Keeping your core tight, push off with your back leg but controlling your body up with the leg that is on the box. Once at the top of the box, stand nice and tall, and squeeze your glutes.
  4. As you begin to step down, drive your hip back first as you start to bend your knee so it does not go over your toe as you bring your foot down to the ground.

TIPS: keep nice and tall, use your glutes for power, hold onto something if feeling unstable
CHALLENGE: add a weight! (See video #2)
