TRAINER QUICK TIP: Step It Up!

TRAINER QUICK TIP: Step It Up!
If you’re looking to squeeze that butt into skinny jeans this holiday season, I have just the exercise for you. Step-ups target your glutes, hamstrings and quads and will help you build a rockin’ lower body.
This exercise requires a bench or platform that is at about knee level. While you’re stepping up onto the bench, pay attention to a couple of things. Make s…ure you maintain good posture  – keep your abs engaged and don’t arch or round your back. Also, control your descent rather than letting momentum drop your body as you’re stepping down.
* Step-ups:
Stand facing a bench with your feet hip width apart. Place your left foot up on the bench, making sure your whole foot (including the heel) is firmly on the bench.
Exhale as you press down into your left foot and step your right foot up onto the bench. Both feet should be firmly planted on the bench at the midpoint of this exercise. Slowly lower your left leg back to the ground, then lower your right leg.
Repeat, completing 12 to 15 reps on your left side before switching to the right side for another 12 to 15 reps.
