5 Moves To Make You Stand Tall And Look Fab In High Heels

Make yourself look extra glam in your stilettos.

To wear heels and make it look easy needs a lot of work. Take it from Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, who wears at least 6-inch-high heels. She works out her core "because you have to be able to support yourself in heels."

Here are some of the moves you can do to build your core, along with your leg muscles, so you can look poised in heels. 

1. Plank

This strengthens your lower back, hence improving your balance and posture.

How: Do a push-up position where your weight is on the balls of your feet and your forearms. Keep your wrists under your shoulders. Make sure neck, back, and legs are aligned. Hold the position for 30 seconds or a minute.

2. Side Plank

This targets your abs and builds core strength for improved posture.

How: Place your right elbow on the floor right under your shoulder. Make sure your body forms a straight line from your head to your feet. Place your left leg on your right leg. Then lift your body/hips. Hold the position for 10 to 30 seconds. Drop the position, then switch to your left side. Repeat.


3. Plank With Leg Raises

This strengthens your core, lower back, and glutes for good balance and posture.

How: Do a plank position, then raise your right leg 6 to 12 inches from the floor. Make sure your leg is straight. Hold the position for 5 seconds, then go back to the starting position. Do the same on your left leg.

Do 15 reps for 3 sets, with 30-second breaks in between.

4. Wall Calf Stretch

This warms up your calves and eases tension in them.

How: Stand 1 to 2 feet away from a wall. Rest your hands on the wall. Place your right foot forward, with your right toe up on the wall. Press your heel down. Make sure you keep both legs straight. Hold for 20 seconds and then switch sides.

5. Heel Raises

This builds strength in your calves and ankles.

How: Stand up straight with your heels together and your toes facing outward. Lift both heels off the ground, hold for a second. Lower your heels to starting position with control.
