Steps-ups work your legs and glutes while making your heart pump! When completing step-ups, be sure to have weight in your heel to work your thigh rather than your calf muscle. Here's how:
- Stand in front of a sturdy chair* (make sure it won't slide out from under you) and place your left foot in the center of the seat.
- Step up onto the chair and bring your right knee forward and up.
- Lower yourself back to the floor, with the foot landing quietly.
- Switch legs, and repeat. That completes two steps.
- Do 20 steps total.
*If a chair feels too high, use a shorter stool or a bottom stair.
