Dumbbell step-up

The dumbbell step-up is a great exercise for building lower-body strength and power. It targets all the same muscles as bodyweight step-ups, such as the quads, glutes, and hamstrings, but allows for greater muscular overload.

Benefits

  1. Builds lower-body strength and power
  2. Less of a balance challenge than barbell step-ups
  3. Reveals any strength imbalances between the legs
