Calf Raise (Strength)
Stand up straight with both feet flat on the floor, slightly apart. Hold onto a sturdy chair, railing, counter, or table.
Raise both heels so you’re standing on the balls of your feet. Don’t lock your knees or arch your back. Hold for 5 seconds. Then slowly lower your heels back down to the floor.
Repeat 10 times, or as instructed.
Do this exercise 3 times a day, or as instructed.
As you become stronger, do this exercise on one foot at a time.
