#3 – Step-ups
An amazingly simple but highly effective exercise which targets your bum and the front and back of your thighs. Stand in front of a chair with your feet shoulder width apart. Step up onto the chair with your left leg by extending your knee and hip and bring the second leg up beside it on the chair. Then step down by leading with the second leg, bending the knee of the left leg as you step down into the start position. Repeat but this time leading with the right leg. Do as many repetitions as you are comfortable with but you really need to feel it working your upper leg and backside. The higher the level of the surface you’re stepping up onto, the more difficult it is.
