Target Muscles: Quadriceps and Glutes

Bench Step Up Overview

This exercise targets the thighs and butts. It isolates the glutes and quads and can be an amazing addition to any type of workout routine. The equipment needed to perform this exercise is a medicine ball and a bench.

The quads are the muscles present in front of the thighs, while the glutes serve as a connecting point between the back muscle and joints. The purpose of this exercise is to tone and strengthen your glutes and butts.

How to Do It?

  • Begin the exercise by placing a bench press in front of you. Stand in a position with your feet and shoulder width apart, holding a medicine ball in your hand.
  • Now step up on the bench and stand straight by stretching your quads at the height of the exercise.
  • Step back down and repeat as needed.

Bench Step Ups Tips

  • Place the bench on a plain surface so it doesn't lose balance.
  • Step up carefully on the bench and stand straight with the distance between your legs.
