4. Step Ups
Start position: Place your right foot on a step or platform of at least 12 to 15 inches high. Make sure your knee is bent at a 90 degree angle (knee above ankle) for safety.
Movement: Pushing through your right heel on the platform, straighten your right leg as you bring your left toe up to the step or platform. Lower your left foot down slowly, barely touching the toes of your left foot to the floor.
Perform: Do 2 to 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps on each leg.
