Heel Taps


Prevention and Treatment of Youth Sport Injuries

Similar to stairs but the foot up on the step never needs to leave the step and you either face to the side or for a larger challenge can face down the step and step forward and down. Stand on the leg you want to exercise and reach with the heel of the opposite foot down the step. Raise the leg back up onto the step you are standing on without using the hands to pull, but maintain a light hold for balance purposes. Repeat 15 to 20 times and 3 sets on each side if needed.
