5 Foot Exercises For Building Strength and Flexibility (Infographics)
Learn how to get your feet fit with this helpful infographic guide!
When trying to improve our health and fitness, it’s important to create a workout that targets every body part from head to toe. While many of us pay lots of attention to our arms, legs and core… the humble foot tends to go unnoticed and unloved. Our feet work hard - carrying us approximately 115,000 miles in a lifetime. Yet we tend to give our tootsies little TLC in return.
This infographic guide from Walsh Brothers Shoes (below) outlines five simple foot exercises that you can fit into your routine to build strength and flexibility. Taking the time to exercise can help boost your overall foot health and has been shown to have many benefits including:
· Improved balance
· Reduced muscle soreness
· Prevents toe cramps
· Reduced stiffness
What’s more, studies show that strong feet face a much lower risk of injury. This is crucial when you consider that nine out of ten people suffer from some form of foot injury at some point in their life.
Looking after your feet will also help to boost the health of your whole body. This is because your feet serve as the “foundation” as your body, and so when your feet hurt you are more likely to experience problems in other body parts. For example, your back and your joints can both suffer as a result of foot pain.
Fortunately, it’s very easy to exercise your feet whether you’re at home or at the gym. All it takes is a few minutes and you don’t even need any fancy equipment! Check out the infographic below to learn five quick and easy ways to start building strength and flexibility in your feet today!
