Step Up – High Box, Weight

HOW: Place a step on the ground in front of you. This step should be a difficult height, but not too difficult. Grab onto a dumbbell with both hands and hold it at your chest, like a goblet. Put the foot/leg that you want to work on to the step. Shift your weight onto that foot and push into the step propelling your body onto the elevated surface. Slowly lower down that leg and repeat.    FEEL: The leg on the box will be using your hip, thigh, and lower leg muscles.  COMPENSATION: Keep your chest up and back straight, stay tall as you go up and down on the step.
