Simple heel raises to help strengthen your feet and the muscles around your ankles. 1. Place the balls of your feet (with toes pointing straight) on a wood block, step or large book. 2. Allow your heels to slowly drop down and maintain this position for five seconds. 3. Raise your heels as high as you can and maintain this position for three seconds. Repeat, only with the toes pointed inward toward each other, then with the toes pointed outward and away from each other. #Foothealth

Calf Raises 3 Ways

I must come clean and confess that I neglect my calves. Aside from stretching them in Downward Dog, I spend little time on this overworked muscle that helps propel me forward as I run. I'm changing my ways, and have added calf raises to my strength

As requested by imemymine2012, here’s a workout to help you get the toned legs of a dancer. Pair this with a lot of stretching and you should notice a difference, especially in your calves, pretty quickly. For extra intensity, add dumbbells to the squats and lunges. Also, if you have a hard time balancing in the one-legged calf raises, stand near a wall or counter so you have something to rest your hand on for balance. That’s why we have barres in ballet classes!
