What Does the POPSUGAR Step Deck Come With?
When you excitedly open the box for the POPSUGAR Step Deck, you'll see a step with the two extra step levels attached underneath, so you can choose a low level or a higher level. You'll also find an exercise guide that shows examples of exercises you can do with your step deck.
What Is the POPSUGAR Step Deck Made Of?
The step deck is made of lightweight plastic, weighing just 5.5 pounds. The dimensions are 25"L x 10.5"W x 6"H. The surface is nonslip, and there are nonslip floor pads attached on the bottom.
How Do I Use the POPSUGAR Step Deck?
This step deck is so easy to set up. It comes as the lower level, but if you want to make it higher, just pull the two extra attachments off and stack them on the bottom (like Legos). This step can be used for step-ups or for dumbbell step-ups. You can also use it like a low box for box jumps, which is a great option if you're short or new to box jumps.
You can also use this step deck to elevate your hands for push-ups to make them easier or to elevate one hand to do offset push-ups. Want to make your push-ups harder? Use the step deck to elevate your feet. You can also use it as a bench for triceps dips or for elevated split squats. It's so versatile!
