Whether you use a dining-room chair or a set of stairs in your building, Teddy loves step-ups for working the thighs, glutes, and hips.
- Find a step or chair that you can place your foot squarely on that will bring your knee up to a 90-degree angle.
- Step up 20 times leading with the left foot, then the right, bringing both feet completely onto the chair. To return to the starting position, lead with the left foot to step down to the floor, then the right, until ending with both feet on the ground. Switch legs and start stepping with the right foot for 20 steps.
- To make this move more challenging, start by stepping onto the bench with your left foot, bring your right foot up to a 90-degree angle, then lower your right foot down to the floor (as shown). This is one rep. Your left foot never moves as you bend and straighten your left knee. Repeat either move for a total of 30 seconds
