Booty Busting Series--Best Exercises to Build that Butt #14: Step-Ups

December 20, 2014 1 min read

It's time to get back to the basics with this classic exercise! It's one of the first exercises that trainers teach newbie gymgoers, as it's fairly easy to learn properly. There is very little equipment needed, and you can do it pretty much anywhere. The beauty of step-ups is that most of the work is done by the glutes and quads. The focus is mainly on these two muscles, though your hamstrings do a bit of the work. You can usually add a pretty good amount of weight to your workout without straining yourself, and you'll feel the burn in your legs and glutes!

Step-Ups

Place a weighted barbell across your shoulders behind your neck, using your hands to keep it balanced. Stand in front of a raised platform (preferably about 12" tall) Place your right foot on the platform, and push off with your left foot as you step up. (If you want to add difficulty, bring your left knee to your chest as you step up.) Don't rest your weight on your left foot, but put it back on the floor to complete the exercise. Repeat as desired with both legs.   Resources: http://www.wikihow.com/Build-Butt-Muscles

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
