Pre-Workout Warm Up Exercises 11: Step Up and Step Down

 step up step down

This is one of easiest warm up exercise, which you can perform in gym or in home if you plan your workout there.

Take a wooden block of 1 ½ – 2 foot. Stand straight, with your chest forward. Take a step on block with your right foot. Then step down with same foot. Repeat it 10 times. Now repeat procedure with left foot. By taking each steps also move your hands and arm as you move them in march parade, this would warm up your shoulder muscles. If moving your arms are difficult, then place them on your hips.  If you don’t have a wooden block you can perform this workout on stairs. This exercise covers your thigh, glutes and hip muscles.

You can increase intensity of this exercise by increasing wooden block size or taking two stairs at times.
