Do any of you know the exact muscles used when doing high box step ups?
Some people I talk to say they hit your quads more than your hams. I feel them mostly in my hams, butt and a little bit in my hips. But I am not sure if this is because my quads are stronger from my years of cycling.
I need to work on my hams... but I don't like doings stiff legged deadlifts all the time because it aggrevates an old lower back ingury. Any ideas?
Thanks. I am new to this forum. The advice here, for the most part, seems pretty solid. Pfunk seems to have consistently sound advice. I am a former semi pro cyclist but would like to get more seriously into strength training.
