Toe raise

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.


Teaching Points:

  • 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.
