For this workout you will want to KEEP MOVING! So choose a step up height that is challenging but will allow you to move through all 8 each time. These step ups are alternating, so for each set of 8 you end up doing 4 per leg.
Make sure you step with your WHOLE foot on the box or step. Do not allow the knee to cave in. Drive through your heel to stand completely on top.
If you're feeling it today - you can try holding the weight at your sides (2 dumbbells) or at the chest (single DB or KB) for the step ups today!
For the press you will hold the weight at the shoulder level with elbows slightly in front. Keep the belly tight and butt squeezed and press straight up! Finish with the weight overhead - ribs down - butt squeezed and biceps by the ears.
Lower with the elbows in front back to the shoulders.
Choose a weight that you won't have to break more than once per set.
