Stepping it up   January 23, 2015

The objective is to reinforce posture and position that is favorable and transferable to sprinting, generating power and Olympic lifting. The higher the step, the more flexibility is required in the hip joint. Gradual increases in step height will produce both stronger and more flexible hips. Isolating one leg will help identify and address muscle imbalances. It also creates a greater demand on the athlete’s balance and coordination than in a squat.
