Activate Running Muscles With Side Step-Ups

This aerobics-inspired exercise targets key muscles that runners need worked.

[brightcove id=”3770088184001″]

This is an exercise that will remind you of those aerobic television shows ESPN used to show on weekday mornings. But side step-ups work the core, the hips, the quads and back muscles—all excellent for runners.

Do each leg 2-4 times, 6-10 reps each.
