Shin Splints: Calf Raises — Basic

Raising the heels destabilizes your ankle joints. Not only are you strengthening your calves with this exercise, but you're also challenging the muscles that support the ankle joint.

  • Position your feet hip-distance apart.
  • Slowly raise your heels until you're on your tiptoes, then slowly lower back down to the ground. Take three slow counts to raise and lower your heels.
  • Do 20 reps.
