Step Ups are often left out of training routines because of their challenging nature. Don’t miss out on the benefits of this useful tool! – Aim to use a box, bench, or step that puts your hip level with or below knee height. – Warmp up with no weight. – Keep arms (weights) at sides, with very little swing. – Drive thru the heel of the front (box) leg, keeping the knee from traveling forward as much as possible. – Return to a flat footed position with the back (floor) leg, trying to only drive off the box leg. – Keep a tall back, with chest and head up. ✔️Lower repetitions and heavy weight are great for building strength & power. ✔️Higher repetitions are perfect for growing strength endurance used for running, biking, hiking, and steep climbs. ✔️All variations help improve stabilization and balance. ✔️Safe for knees and lower backs. ✔️Use alone or combine with other exercises for compound or supersets.
