Step-Ups

Starting Position Begin by standing in front of the step or riser (8-12 inches tall) facing forward.

Action Place right foot in the middle of step and step up as you balance your body for 1-2 seconds on the right leg. Your left leg should be behind your body to help stabilize your weight as it is shifting. Step down with your left leg first and continue on down with your right. Try for 2 sets of 10-12 repetitions for each leg.

Special Instructions If you donít feel comfortable with a riser or step height between 8-12 inches, start out at a lower height.
