Forward Raises

Raising your heels destabilizes your ankle joints. Not only are you strengthening your calves with this move, but you’re also challenging the muscles that support the ankle joint. Double win!

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.

Outward Raises

Changing the angle of the feet by rotating the legs outward challenges different muscles in the lower leg. This position will work your arch of your foot more as well. A strong arch helps prevent the ankle from rolling inward.

Position your feet hip-width apart, then externally rotate your thighs to turn your toes outward at about a 45-degree angle.

Do 20 reps.

Inner Raises

Again, changing the angle of the feet by rotating the legs inward challenges different muscles in the lower leg.

Position your feet hip-width apart, then by rotating at your hip joints turn your toes inward so they are almost touching. Slowly raise your heels until you’re on your tiptoes, then lower back down to the ground. Take three slow counts to raise and lower your heels.

Do 20 reps.

Live fit!
