The step-up is a recognised activity in the fitness world. It consists of carrying out choreographed movements on a bench, such as a STEP by O’live Fitness, which has anti-slip supports and a height that can vary depending on how difficult you want to make the exercise, measurements that can vary between 10 cm and 20 cm.
This type of training combines cardiovascular and toning exercises, it improves the lower body including thighs, glutes and hips. Learning the technique is very easy and, with practice, you will acquire a healthier and slimmer body.
It is very easy to practice this at home. All you need are some good trainers to protect your ankles, a bottle of water and a Deck. Remember not to leave anything around the STEP, as you will need space to do the choreography. Furthermore, it is very important that the stepper should grip the floor so that you can practice your exercises in complete safety.
With the Step-up you can do an endless amount of exercises by stepping up and down from the Deck to the rhythm of the music and by making up creative aerobic dance routines. Below is an example for step-up exercises:
