Standing Calf Raises
Hold a dumbbell in one hand (same
side as calf being worked) hanging down at side, palm in.
Place the ball of one foot on the
edge of a raised object, letting your heel and arch extend off the object
stretching as far down as possible.
Hold on to a machine, wall, etc.
with free hand and keep back straight, head up, and leg locked.
Put other foot next to or behind
leg being trained.
Raise up on toe as high as possible
and hold for a quick second while flexing the calf muscle.
Return to the starting position in
a slow, controlled manner.
Don't let hips move backward or
forward and don't bend at knee causing momentum.
Don't shorten the height that you
raise up. Be sure to rise up as high as possible and flex your calf.
