How to do the Step Ups
Start by looking at a bench infront of you and begin by lifting your any leg and then step-up onto the bench. You can either return to the starting position or lift the opposing leg up working your hip flexor. Once down at the starting position use the other leg for the next repetition.Spotter Information:
Stand beside the subject to make sure they do not pass out or the bench doesn't move out of place while performing the 'Step Up'.
