Lateral step-ups strengthen and define the inner thighs and hips. Lateral steps ups can be performed with dumbbells for added resistance. The side-to-side movement provides additional stability requirements for the hips and core muscles. Lateral step ups can be used to shape and define the legs. Include this exercise in your lower-body or circuit training workout.
