Heel Raise on a Step

Heel raise on a step

  2. Keeping both knees straight, slowly lift your heels above the step so that you are standing on your toes. Then slowly lower your heels below the step and toward the floor.
  3. Return to the starting position, with your feet even with the step.
  4. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
