Single Leg Calf Raise

Look Fantastic In Heels With This Challenge! 

Don’t neglect your calf muscle! It’ll help finish the look of long, sleek legs you’re going for and the single leg calf raise will do the trick perfectly.

Step 1:

Get into a standing position, holding a chair or table beside you for balance. Slowly lift one foot up off the floor, bending the knee and positioning it behind you.
