Wanna Get A Toned Butt And Thighs? This Simple Exercise Guarantees It…

The Step Up Is One Of The Most Powerful Exercises for Anyone Trying to Achieve A Toned Butt and ThighsHow To Get A Sexy Butt And Thighs

If you’re one to go with what’s popular above all else, you’re probably considering silly gadgets or other fads in your quest to get a sexy butt and thighs. But for those who are willing to look deeper, into less visible exercise options, you’ll find some routine variations that are actually superior.

Most prominent in this area for being overlooked yet effective at toning the glutes is the step-up, an exercise choice that requires no special tools or equipment.

The step-up is as simple as you’d think from the name: all it involves is stepping up on an object, and then back down again. This is often, but not always, done with the aid of weights to add extra challenge to the activity, and to allow it to scale upwards as the practitioner’s muscles develop.

So, why would you use a step-up as your favorite glute-building exercise? To answer that, we’ll look at the issue of stress – specifically, stress on the back and the knee.

All exercises that are useful for toning your buttocks will inevitably place a certain amount of strain on the knees. The lower back is also commonly stressed, and all this is unavoidable simply due to how the human body works.

Can you guess which option gives the least knee and lower back strain, while still having maximum effectiveness? It shouldn’t surprise you by now that the answer is the step-up!

The step-up also has a certain level of scaling potential that can lead it to multitask as an exercise. Are you unhappy with the flexibility of your hamstrings or the strength of your quadriceps? (Both are important for sexy thighs) Try moving your stepping platform slightly higher.

This will place more emphasis on those areas of your body, allowing you to get extra benefits that other exercises wouldn’t give. And you still don’t relinquish the glut and thigh benefits!

Step-ups can be performed on any set of steps, but are best when you have a small platform, such as a stool, that’s just the right height to challenge you. Don’t forget to tailor your stepping platform to your body, since different heights will require different elevation levels to work with.

Gyms will also have such platforms available by default, so give the step-up a try if you have a membership and it’s never occurred to you before.

With literally nothing else that does better for less trouble, you’d be a fool to throw the step-up away. It’s a good reminder that not all unpopular things are that way because they don’t work!
