INSTRUCTIONS: Any step equipment will suffice as long as it’s sturdy and doesn’t move. Choose a step where you can add or remove the risers underneath. If the step is too high, you’re going to exhaust yourself very quickly. Adjust the step risers to accommodate your ability.
MODIFICATIONS: 1) Remove the risers under the step. 2) Perform the routine on a mat on the floor, without the step. 3) Slow your pace.
CAUTIONS: Don’t do exercises that are beyond your physical capability. Either do the modification(s), or find an alternative that works the same muscle groups.
