Anterior Step Down

Anterior Step Down

  • HOW: Stand on the step. Shift all of your weight to one leg. With the non-weight bearing foot, you will reach forward and lightly tap the ground with your heel, and then come back up to your starting position.
  • FEEL: You should feel all the thigh muscles and the butt muscles working in the weight bearing leg, but primarily in the thigh muscles.
  • COMPENSATION: Avoid putting too much weight (if any weight at all) on the foot you are reaching down with. Donโ€™t let your knee cave in, and avoid rounding your back or side bending.
