The High Heel Workout

I just ordered these fabulous shoes this morning from http://www.lulus.com/ and I can't wait to wear them! I've been searching for a neutral platforms for sometime now, so I could not pass these shoes up. The heel is a little chunkier than what I am used too, but after reading recent issues of Vogue and Glamour, chunky platforms are making a come back.


A recent study of high heels and the muscles they affect revealed that heels actually help build strong calf muscles (great news for runners and bikers). The angle of the foot causes your calf to work harder (think of it like doing heel rises all day long, you are working the same muscles).



I've been working really hard to add some shape to my non-existent calf muscles. I've noticed a huge difference in the size of my calves and I think that they are really starting to grow. I can't wait to show off my new calves. Below are two of my favorite calve exercises.

@Jess, I'm slowly making way to wearing a higher heel. I'm glad that you are moving here...another tall friend to hang out with! Now I can wear heels without looking like a giant (most of my QC friends are short) lol
