Step Ups are a great way to target the glutes and hamstrings, as long as you step through the heel. To begin, watch the video tutorial below and then get started.
To begin, find a sturdy box, bench or step and then step.
- Place on foot on top of the bench or box and step through the heel
- Perform the step up exercise either 10 to 12 times for best results
- Either target one leg at a time, or alternate. For increased resistance, add weight, or make the exercise plyometric by hopping at the top of the movement
