Athletes looking to run faster, jump higher, and become more agile should focus on strengthening the body from the ground up through instability training. This can involve the use of rubber bands, mini-trams, and balance boards to work all areas of the feet, ankles and lower legs as well as the knees, hips, and back.

Examples of exercises include: standing on one foot at a time on a mini-trampoline for 15 to 30 seconds, changing positions on the tram or boards, and moving the foot up and down, side to side and in and out with rubber bands or tubing to strengthen the lower leg muscles.  

There are various methods to help you exercise your feet. Speak to Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay if you would like to learn about other activities that will exercise the feet. Dr. Stein will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs and provide you with quality treatment.

Exercise for Your Feet

If you spend most of your time on your feet, or don’t either way your feet should deserve attention. There are many people who exercise regularly and still don’t spend enough time to care for their feet. Your foot does get exposure that requires maintenance since your health has a lot to do with footing.

Exercises

Toe rise – this exercise involves standing on the tip-toes for a count of 15 seconds, then resting your feet on ground. This exercise should be repeated three times a day to strengthen the feet.

Toe Pick-ups – the toes are exercises that are done by picking up small items using your toes. This helps strengthen the muscles on the upper part of the feet. Three sets along with 15 seconds being held should be completed. Small items like marbles or stationary will work.

Ankle Pump – can be performed upwards or downwards. The workout can be completed both ways at the same time. This involves flexing the foot either towards the shin or to the ground. This makes the foot work very well, working large parts of the muscles.
