HOW: For this exercise, begin in a split stance position with one foot in front of you with a slight knee bend. Once in the appropriate position, shift most of your weight forward onto the front leg. From here, bring the toes of the front leg up towards the ceiling. Hold for the given amount of time and slowly lower the toes back to the ground.
FEEL: You should feel the muscles in the front of your shin working as you lift the toes up off of the floor.
COMPENSATION: Avoid having the knee on the front leg come out of a bent position to further challenge the muscles of the front foot and ankle.
