Step Up – 4 Way

  • HOW: Begin with a small step set on the ground. Using one side edge of the step, step up forward with the leg closest to the step bringing the outside legโ€™s knee up into a runnerโ€™s position. From here, bend your inside knee and step out to the side with your outside leg tapping your toe. Return to the runnerโ€™s position.Then, step towards the front with the same outside leg tapping your heel, then back to the runnerโ€™s position. Finally, bend your knee of the planted leg as you reach your outside leg behind you to tap your toe.ย 
 
  • FEEL: You should mostly feel your quadriceps and glute muscles working on the leg that is on the step.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep the inside foot on the step at all times. Keep your chest up as you bend your knee and sit back into the hip pocket of the stance leg
