Heel Toe Walking

Heel toe walking is a great exercise for the ankle and calf muscles. It will strengthen all muscles of the lower leg, as well as help improve proprioception or balance.

Teaching Points:

  • Walk slowly across the floor.
  • Start with a heel strike and once you get to the forefoot push-off, come up onto the toes.
  • Swing the other leg forward and heel strike with the next foot to continue.
