Toothbrush Calf Raises
Calf raises play an important role in developing your lower leg muscle tone and overall leg symmetry. Can we agree that well-shaped calf muscles make you look great in your running shorts? How about with that cocktail dress and those new heels? As important as it is to look great, calf raises actually strengthen the muscles that help maintain your skeleton’s proper alignment. Take a couple minutes while you brush your teeth and give this micro-workout a try.
Stand square in front of the mirror with your feet flat on the floor and your tailbone tucked in. You can place one hand on the counter if you need to for balance. Lift your heels off the floor; stand on your tippy toes. Stand tall for two seconds before lowering your heels back to the floor.
