I have a bad habit of dragging my toes as I walk. This is one of the leg exercises and balance exercises that has helped me to stop this habit. It strengthens your muscles that prevent us from dragging our toes when we walk, climb stairs or step over curbs. It also helps us to maintain good balance.
This exercise will develop the muscles in the front of your lower leg, and is an excellent addition to any fitness routine.
