Try these 7 Step Strength exercises 👉
BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUAT
Targets: glute, hamstring, quad & balance Modification: take back leg off the step and place on the ground.
Placing the hands on the incline protects your shoulder joint during push-ups. If you're working on push-ups this is a great place to build strength!
Targets: core & chest Placing the hands on the floor vs on the step makes this movement harder. You have to squeeze the core and glutes for balance and support!
ALTERNATING REVERSE LUNGES
Modification - if this is too much on the knees, you can do this from the ground and work on regular lunges. The step adds an element of balance for the core!
Targets: glutes, hamstrings, core, & back This is a great modification for those of you who do not enjoy squats. Low impact!
RENEGADE ROW + WALK THE PLANK
Targets: back, core, shoulders & chest This is an advanced move. From the rowing (back exercise) to walking the plank a lot of muscle groups are firing!
BICEP CURL + UP UP DOWN DOWN
Targets: biceps, core and cardio Adding a small element of cardio by walking up and down the steps while performing a bicep curl!
