The posterior tibialis muscle inverts and points the foot, as well as playing an essential role in stabilising the arch. This move helps strengthen the muscle and tendon.
1/ Loop a knotted resistance band around a support at ground level. Sit on a chair side on to the support and slip the band around the ball of the near foot. Move away until there is tension in the band.
2/ Cross your other foot behind the banded one and ‘lock’ your knees together. Draw the banded foot in and up, moving from the ankle. Pause, return to start, repeat. Do 4 sets of 8 reps on each side, daily.
