How to Exercise Your Feet 101

Written by Billy Kanter. Posted in Foot Health

Hello everyone. I know you all missed me during my week hiatus, but no need to worry, I’m back. I hope you were able to make it through your Friday without my latest foot related tips. This week I’m going to focus on a few basic exercises that will help strengthen your feet and ankles. Don’t fret; you won’t need a gym for these. All of these exercises can be done pretty much anywhere.

Feet that are strong

Exercise 1:

• Ankle Flexes:

These will help strengthen the muscles in front of your shin, as well as improve the dorsiflexion of your ankles.
First, pull your foot up as if you are trying to touch your toes to the front of your shin. Then, hold this position for a long pause and repeat.

Exercise 2:

• Toe Pick Ups:

This may seem a bit strange, but it’s actually very helpful for strengthening your toes and improving their flexibility. Place a small pile of objects on the floor and use your toes to pick them up and move them around.

Exercise 3:

• Bottle Rolls:

This is a great way to message your plantar fascia, the most commonly injured part of the foot. Also, it will help you strengthen the muscles on the bottom of your feet. Fill a water bottle with water and freeze it. Then, place your foot on top of the bottle and roll it back and forth. This isn’t really rocket science, it’s pedorthics, but these little helpful tips can greatly improve the overall health of your feet. The better your feet feel, the better you will feel.

Feet that are sexy and strong
