Single Leg Heel Raise – Eversion Bias, Wall Supported
HOW: Start by standing next to a wall. Place the inside arm’s hand on the wall and lean against it with a slight bend in your elbow. Bend the inside knee up and put most of your body weight on the outside leg. Slowly push into the ground with the outside leg and raise your heel off of the ground. Towards the end make sure to really push with your big toe. Squeeze your calf at the top and slowly lower your heel back down and repeat. The majority of your weight should be on the inside of your foot, on the big toe.
FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your calf working.
COMPENSATION: Keep your knee straight as you perform the heel raise, don’t bend it. Keep your hand on the wall but don’t use the wall to help raise your heel.
