We all want to look good in our party outfits, so why risk wobbling around in your Jimmy Choos, as opposed to strutting with style?! So to help us strengthen those lower leg muscles, we are going to be doing a killer calf raise combo! Who says being on your tip toes was easy??
Stand tall with your shoulders back, chest up and abs. Feel free to hold on to the wall or a stable surface, then repeat the following;
-x8 Calf raises (feet together)
-x8 Calf raises (toes together, heels apart)
-x8 Calf raises (heels apart, toes together)
-x8 Calf raises (feet shoulder width apart)
Take a 30 second break and see if you can a few more rounds (if you dare!!).
You can perform the calf raises sitting down also, so choose the appropriate stance that works for you.
On a serious note, let us spare a thought for our feet this Christmas! They carry us wherever we want to go, so they don't deserve to be squeezed into shoes that clearly are not our size and we can't even walk in them!! Poorly fitting shoes and excessively high heels can lead to poor posture, corns and even bunions! So do yourself a favour and be shoe smart. My mantra is, if the shoes don't fit you in the shop, then they won't fit you at home either!! LOL
