How to Do a Step-Up with a Kick Back

Step-Up with a Kick Back

This is a great exercise to shape up your glutes and legs, it is recommended to do 2 sets of 12 repetitions to start. This exercise will also help you get a better balance, to increase its effectiveness you can add weights and a higher step. And to make it even more interesting, challenging and fun add music.


All right, find your step, your stair, whatever you’re gonna use. It can be a little bit higher than this, we just one riser in for now. You start in your lunge position, back on the ball of your foot. Coming up, kick back and down. Come up, kick back, and down. Come up, kick back, and down. If you notice, I’m tapping the box each time. It kind of helps you to maintain your balance, remind you of what you’re doing.

So, stay nice and centered, come straight up, lifting the leg back, and straight back down. When you get to the top, pulse the leg out for 10, and switch sides.
