I designed this warm up utilizing the step machine, and I really love it! I perform this warm up 3X a week. It targets all angles to really unify and engage all the muscles of the legs. The warm up is 700 steps all together, 100 each direction. You can watch the step count on the screen to let you know where your’e at step wise….lets dive in!

500-700 Steps

Skip A Step. This will count as 200 on the counter, but technically its 100 steps. Skipping a step so you have depth will really give you a great rep on those legs. If you walk up stairs at the gym, practice always skipping a step, this will really help define our legs.

And you’re done! This warm up will take on average 12-15 minutes, depending on your pace, and burns on average 100 calories!  If you want to turn this into a workout, repeat sets 3-4 times 💪🏼💜 – Lee Gonzalez
