Walk up stairs flat-footed

When I was a child I was told to walk up stairs on the balls of my feet.

That was bad guidance.

As a consequence of that guidance my calf muscles have, over the years, shortened. Shortened calf muscles have caused all sorts of problems: difficult to stand erectly, difficult to squat properly, limited flexibility, and others.

So, what is the right way to walk up a flight of stairs? Answer: walk flat-footed. On each step your foot should be flat on the step.
