During the work week, the majority of us spend more than half of our day in a chair. In doing so our leg muscles may not receive the attention that they should. Here are two simple exercises that will allow you to regain that strength and stay on your toes. A healthy body, much like a business, must always start with a solid foundation.
1. Stand with your back straight and your feet approximately 15” apart
2. Keeping both feet pointing straight ahead, slowly raise straight up transferring your weight to your toes
3. Slowly lower yourself taking the weight off your toes (be sure not to let your heels come in contact with the floor)
4. repeat until you ‘feel the burn’ in your calfs, repeat ten times, each time come to the burning sensation
