Step Ups

A functional lower body exercise which strengthens all your major leg muscles. To make the movement more challenging you have three simple options. Increase the height of the step and thus the range of motion, hold onto a weight in each hand or do both.


Performance Tips


  • Find a stable elevated surface
  • The higher the surface, the harder the exercise
  • Place your whole working foot onto the surface
  • Using the working leg alone, drive up to the standing position
  • Either bring your rear foot to rest on the elevated surface (easier), let it rest just off the back(harder) or drive your rear knee up and through (harder still)
  • Reverse the movement under control until your rear toes gently tap the floor
  • Trying not to rest too much of your weight on the rear foot drive back up to the standing position
  • Hold weights in each hand to ramp up the intensity
