How To Do Heel Stands

Benefits of Heel Stands

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.


  • Keep a good posture while doing this exercise
  • Use a chair or the edge of a counter for balance

Workout Procedure

  1. Position yourself about one and a half feet from a chair or counter
  2. Your feet should be about shoulder width apart
  3. Tighten your ab muscles and tuck in your chin so that your back is straight
  4. Slowly lift your toes and the balls of your feet off the floor as you breathe out
  5. Slowly lower your toes and the balls of your feet back to the starting position as you breathe in
  6. Build up to 50 repetitions of this workout

You can perform this exercise while brushing your teeth.
