Top 7 exercises for women who love their heels
All girls know that wearing high heels isn’t feet friendly. It puts a lot of strain on your calves, ankles and feet. They challenge your ability to balance yourself too. But there is nothing as confidence building as a pair of stilettos!! It makes a woman look hot 😛
I have a pair of heels and let me tell you I had a terrible foot ache after parading in them at the mall…. Ouch!! Shopping+heels is not a good idea after all! You would have also experienced something similar to that but wearing flats is no fun!! Ok, so you love your heels (be it any kind) and can’t do without them; here are some exercises that will help you out. You can include them in your workout as warm-up moves.
Exercise 1: Rocking Down Dog
Position yourself on your hands and knees on the floor. Pull your rear up towards the ceiling and straighten your arms and legs. Lifting your heel, pedal the feet up and down. Switch feet and try to get the heel to the floor. Pedal each foot ten times.
Stand at an arm’s length facing a wall. Move a step forward with your right foot; keeping both feet flat on the ground. Place the hands on the wall at your chest-height. Press the right knee towards the wall so you feel a kind of stretch in your left (rear) calf of your leg. Hold for two seconds and then release the stretch. That is one rep. Do 8 reps per leg.
Sit down flat with legs straight and the hands on the floor behind you. Place a foam roller under the right ankle and cross the left leg over the right. Raise your rear a few inches above the floor. Press the body forward as you roll the foam roller up the calf . Continue rolling up and down the calf slowly. If you find point that feels tight, pause for a few seconds. Roll for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Grab a small but hard ball, such as a tennis or golf ball. Place the ball under the foot. Roll the ball up and down the foot while focusing on the arch of the foot. Shift your weight to control the intensity. Roll the ball for 1 minute per foot.
Stand on the right leg, raise your right knee to the height of your hip. Grab your thigh for extra support. Moving only your ankle, slowly trace circles with your toes. Do 5 circles per foot
Lie face up on the floor. Bend the knees and place the feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips in order to form a straight line from the knees to the chest. Squeeze your rear for 1 second and then return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps. Take rest for one minute in between sets.
Single-Leg (Dumbbell) Straight-Leg Deadlift
Stand by balancing on your left leg and hold a pair of dumbbells near the thighs. Bend at the hips to lower your upper body towards the ground. Bend the left knee slightly until you feel a stretch in the left hamstring. Extend the right leg straight out behind you. Snap the hips forward as you return to the starting position. That is 1 rep. Do 3 sets of 10 reps on each leg. Rest for one minute in between sets.
