How to: Lateral Step-Up
Primary Muscles Used:Upper Legs, Glutes, Quads, Hamstrings
- Start with your left foot firmly placed on a step beside you and your right foot on the floor, hip-width apart. This is your starting position. Exhale, gently draw your pubic bone to your belly button (engage pelvic floor) as you push through the heel of your left foot to extend your left leg and stand tall. You should feel the weight going through your glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings. Inhale as you lower your right foot to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side, ensuring that your hips are level at the top of each repetition.
