How should I warm up my feet before exercising?

Christopher Chiodo, MD
Orthopedic Surgery
To limber up your foot before attempting other exercises, try this:
  1. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor.
  2. Lift your left leg so your foot is off the floor and use your big toe to make circles in the air, moving in a clockwise direction, for 15 to 20 rotations.
  3. Reverse direction and make another 15 to 20 circles, this time in a counterclockwise direction.
  4. Repeat with your right foot.
