Step-Up with Lateral Leg Lift

Targeted Areas: Glutes, Thighs and Core

Place your body next to the edge of a bench or chair, and turn to the side, facing away. Put one foot on the elevated bench or chair, with the opposite leg on the floor planted directly next to it. Squat by placing your weight into your heels and use this momentum to shift all your weight up to a balance standing position on the chair. Raise your hanging leg in a lateral motion to for an extra burn.

Incorporate balance into your standard step-up and work your side glutes and thighs at the same time! This exercise will tone your entire lower body, keep your heart rate up, and the balance challenge will work your core muscles as well.
