Toe raises


Major muscles used

  • Anterior tibialis

Performing toe raises

  • Stand upright with your toes over the ledge of a weight plate or staircase step.
  • Hold on to a wall or a bar for balance.
  • Only your heels should be on the edge with your toes extended as far out over the edge as you can.
  • Pull your toes upward toward your shins as far as you can, hold for a brief second feeling the contraction in your shins (anterior tibialis).
  • Your body should remain upright.
  • Slowly lower your toes to the starting position in a controlled manner.

Be careful

  • Don't allow too much of your foot to be standing on the edge. Be sure to only have your heel resting on the edge.
