Calf Raises


  • Stand facing a stable surface (a kitchen counter, table, or back of a chair), feet approximately a shoulder width apart, and holding on to the surface with your hands for balance.
  • Lift your unaffected leg off of the ground keeping your affected leg on the ground. Raise your heel off of the ground shifting your weight to your toes. 
  • If this is too much of a challenge initially, perform the exercise with both feet on the ground and work up to performing the exercise on one leg. 
  • Perform 2 sets of 10 and work up to 3 sets of 15.
