Wow, life has gotten crazy and it’s a couple days into June and I didn’t put up the June Challenge! So sorry…but let’s get going!!
The challenge this month is Calf Raises. This exercise is great for improving balance as well as strengthening the muscles in your ankle, arch of your foot, and the back of the leg.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and pressing down on your toes you will lift your heels as high as you can, as if you are wearing a pair of high heeled shoes. Hold for a second at the top and then lower down again.
Then put your legs together so that your toes and heels are touching. Lift the heels again, paying attention to your ankles. Don’t let them roll out.
The challenge is:
|June 1-10||20 with legs apart, 20 with legs together, 5 on each leg by itself|
|June 11-15||20 apart, 20 together, 10 on each leg by itself|
|June 16-20||25 apart, 25 together, 10 on each leg by itself|
|June 21-25||30 apart, 30 together, 10 on each leg by itself|
|June 26-30||35 apart, 35 together, 15 on each leg by itself|
I’d love to hear what you think of this one!
