Power Step Ups With Leg Lifts Improves Speed And Power

An exercise that every serious athlete should be doing is power step ups with leg lifts. This exercise is done as fast as possible with control and good form. And, because this exercise is done one leg at a time, it forces you to use the same pathways that it takes to run fast.

Do this exercise without any weights until you have mastered good technique. Then, you can use dumbbells or a barbell to increase difficulty.

1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart in front of a flat bench or step at least knee high.

2. Keep your torso straight, head up, and step onto the bench with your right foot. Forcefully pull your left foot up and forward until your knee is raised to waist level. Return back down to the starting position. Repeat for the required repetitions. Switch legs and do the same.

Train hard and smart!
