Heel Raises

Man doing heel raises

Heel raises strengthen the calf muscles. Do 8 to 12 repetitions several times during the day.

  • Stand with your feet a few inches apart, with your hands lightly resting on a counter or chair in front of you.
  • Slowly raise your heels off the floor while keeping your knees straight. Hold for about 6 seconds, then slowly lower your heels to the floor.
