The exercise: Rotational step-up

A. Stand with right side next to a step or stairs, placing right foot on step. Turn right foot 90 degrees, toes pointing to the right.

B. Straighten right leg to stand up, turning hips so body now faces step. Place left foot on step. Return to starting position by stepping back with left foot. Do 12 to 15 reps on right leg; switch sides.

Speed Up and Build Endurance

Spend less time (about 20 to 30 seconds) resting between sets at the beginning of your workout when your muscles aren’t exhausted, and more time (40 to 60 seconds) as they become fatigued. This method, known as density training, can cut the time you spend working out by as much as 15 to 20 percent. It also forces your muscles to work harder while improving your endurance at the same time.

More Lower Body Moves

You can amp up your lower body workout by adding weights to your usual squats. With arms at your sides, take a dumbbell in each hand. Stand with legs hip-width apart and toes pointed forward. Bend knees while curling dumbbells into your chest keeping your elbows close to your sides. Once you reach the squat position (try to have your legs at a 90-degree angle) press dumbbells up, stopping just before arms are straight. Then bring your arms back down, reverse the bicep curl and stand up. Repeat 20 to 30 times for a quick full-body workout.
