Calves: Heel Raises
Don't forget your calves! Not only are you strengthening your calves with this simple exercise, but you're also challenging the muscles that support the ankle joint. If you wear high heels regularly, this is a great move to improve your stability.
- Position your feet hip-width 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.
