Starting Position

  • stand with the back against the wall, make one step forward
  • the feet are hip width apart and slightly turned outwards
  • lean against the wall now (your body is in a diagonal line)
  • you can let the arms hang down

Correct Execution

  • slip down at the wall until your thighs are parallel to the ground (the knees are bent to 90 degrees)
  • hold this position
  • now raise the heels, only the balls of the feet touch the ground anymore
  • you can lower and raise the heels again or do it isometrically by keeping the heels up for a while
  • do this for a longer period of time, pause shortly and go on to the next rep
