Simple Soleus Strengthener

The soleus muscle that is underneath the gastrocnemius muscle. The length of the soleus helps to determine the depth of your demi plié. The strength of the soleus aids in jumping. It controls the descent as you lower the heels so you don’t ‘clunk’ your heels down and can land quietly.

Below is a simple and effective way to strengthen the soleus. Do multiple repetitions, focusing on lifting the heel in 1-2 counts, and then slowly lowering it down while maintaining good foot and ankle alignment.

To your success!
