Exercise #2

1. Place one foot in front of you and put all your weight onto the front leg. The back leg is on the floor just for balance.
2. With the front standing foot-come up and down onto your toes, raising your heal as high as possible then lower your foot to the floor.
3. Repeat coming up onto your toes and back down about 5-8 times depending on the strength and flexibility of your legs. This may cause a tightening of the muscles. If it becomes painful or begins to produce a burning sensation then stop the exercise because you have successfully fatigued the muscle to its capacity.
4. Come to a standing position on both legs and vigorously shake the leg you just exercised to eliminate any pain, burning or discomfort.
5. Repeat this same exercise with the other foot. When finished, vigorously shake the leg to relax the muscles.
