Seriously, October?! CRAZY! New month, time for a new challenge! Are you ready to get that booty burning...in a good way?
It's no secret that step-ups are my favorite exercise. They are in all of our workout plans and I usually add them in whenever I can, even if they aren't on the plan. You may hate me at first but you will love me at the end of the month, trust me. :) The number of reps listed is per leg.
You can read more about how to do step-ups here. Below is a picture of the regular step-up, step-up with a knee lift, and step-up with extension. The 4th variation listed in the challenge is the lateral step-up. The lateral step-up is similar to the regular step-up but you are not facing the bench, you are standing next to it. You will use the leg closest to the bench to step-up onto the bench. Repeat for the number of reps listed and then switch to the other side.
If you are advanced and this is too easy for you, you can double or triple each day. If this is too difficult, reduce the time and/or reps down and work your way up. This challenge is totally customizable based on your fitness level.
