Muscles worked: Calves
Time to complete: About 10 minutes
You will need: Just your body (or a pair of dumbbells)
- Start by standing on the floor, or a stair (for better extension)
- With toes pointing outward, raise up slowly onto the ball of your foot, then lower back down (do not touch the floor - keep your heels off the floor/stair) -- Perform 10 SLOW raises, then 10 QUICK raises
- Lower your heels and reposition your feet with your toes pointing forward. In this position, perform 10 SLOW raises, then 10 QUICK raises - this completes a full SET.
- Rest 30 - 60 seconds, then repeat the SET 2-3 more times.
