Step-Up to Balance

This exercise requires a good amount of core strength because balance is required to maintain a good form.

While all of your body weight is balanced on one leg, your gluteals and abs are actively engaged to hold your body in the desired position. 

Step-up to balance is a uni-lateral leg exercise that mimics walking up stairs.

It’s a great exercise to improve balance, muscular strength and endurance in the lower body, that can transfer to many daily activities. 

The step-up mainly targets the muscles of your lower body, such as your gluteus maximus, quadriceps, calves and hamstrings.
