4 Exercises That Make It Easier to Walk in Heels

Every lady regardless of their age or weight would want to walk comfortably when they’re on their high heel shoes. This can prove to be a little bit difficult times.

However, there are actually exercises you could do to make walking in heels easier for you. The following moves are designed to work on everything you need for walking more gracefully in heels of any height. These are posture, strength, and balance.

1. High Heel Lifts

High Heel Lifts

Stand up straight, making sure your heels are together and your toes are facing outward. Now grab a resistance band and tightly wrap one end around each hand.

Hold the band taut and parallel to the ground. With your hand extended, bring the band to your shoulder height. Now with your hand extended, stretch the band to both the left and right sides and simultaneously lift your heels off the ground through each stretch you make.

Lower your heels to the ground with control as you bring your arms back together.
This exercise will help improve your posture and balance while building strength in your ankles and calves.

2. Tight Rope

Tight Rope

Just like high heel lifts, grab a resistance band and tightly wrap one end around each hand. The only difference between this exercise move and the high heel lifts is that this time, you’ll have to take a large step forward with your left foot, bend both knees and raise both heels off the ground.

Use the same procedure of stretching the band. However, this time, you just raise the back heel up and down. The heels of your front leg should remain constantly elevated throughout this routine.

This exercise move strengthens your core to improve your balance and strengthens your ankles and calves.

3. Tight Rope Balance

Grab a resistance band and tightly wrap one end around each hand. Hold the band taut and bring it up to chest level so it is parallel to the ground. Take a step forward, bend your knees and stand on your toes on both legs.

Without letting your heels drop, straighten both legs as you bring the band up overhead. Then bring the band back down to chest level as you bend both knees. That’s one rep.
This exercise will help strengthen your core to promote better balance and strengthens your ankles and calves as well.

4. Arabesque Flying Eagle

 Arabesque Flying Eagle

This one is quite different from the rest and a little bit more complicated.
To do this, take one end of a resistance band in each of your hands with your arms along your sides and your palms facing your body. Place the band on the floor and put your right foot in the center of the band on the floor. Your foot should be turned about 45 degrees to the left.

Bend your left knee slightly, and extend your right leg straight out behind you with your right toes pointed and touching the ground. Keeping your shoulders stacked over your hips and your elbows locked, pull the ends of the band out to the sides and up toward the ceiling as you simultaneously engage your glutes, and lift your right foot straight up behind you. Release your back leg to touch your toes back to the ground as you bring the ends of the band back down to your sides. That’s one rep.

This exercise helps strengthens your glutes and core and promotes better balance.
