Video: Ben Musholt - Tip-Toe Leg Strength
Contributor - Parkour & Bodyweight Exercise
EDITOR'S NOTE: Every Sunday we will be featuring a new bodyweight exercise video from physical therapist Ben Musholt, author of the Mad Skills Exercise Encyclopedia. Ben has a diverse movement background, spanning board sports, martial arts, parkour, and gymnastics. Get watching and get moving!
In this video, Ben demonstrates how to use the tip-toe position to add variety to your basic lower body strength activities. Training in a tip-toe position is a great way to strengthen all those muscles in your lower legs that are often forgotten about with your regular bodyweight or barbell training, in particular, the intrinsic and stabilizing musculature of your calves, feet, and toes.
