This exercise progression uses the lower body, upper body, and core. It's a plank lunge step up. Begin in a low squat. Put your hands on the step in front of you, step back into a plank, step one leg forward, and then stand up on the front leg. Repeat on the other side. Squat down, step back, step forward with the opposite leg and stand. Add load to progress. Place the body bar across the step, step back, steps one leg forward, and stand. For the final progression, use for BOSU Balance Trainer for instability and to activate the core. Squat down and place your hands on the BOSU Balance Trainer, step back, step forward, and then pick up the BOSU as you stand, adding load. That is the plank lunge step up progression.
