Toe raise or foot raise exercises work the shin muscles at the front of the lower leg. This is an early stage exercise which can be progressed using a resistance band.
- To strengthen the shin muscles the athlete raises the toes and forefoot up off the floor.
- Initially this should be seated, before performing in a standing position and then on an incline with the toes lower than the heels.
- When standing, ensure you have something to hold onto for balance purposes.
