Calf Raise with Donkey Kick

Move Targets: Glutes and Quads


Step 1: Facing your chair, grab the front edges with your hands. Step your standing leg out about a foot. Come up to the ball of your foot and lift the opposite leg, keeping the knees together. Notice how Amanda keeps her back straight for this move.


Step 2: Kick the leg up and back with a flexed foot. Get it up as high as you can, like you're stamping your foot on the ceiling. Keep your torso square to the floor and eyes on the chair.


Step 3: Bring the knees together again, then send the same leg up and back to complete a second rep. Do between 8 and 12 on each side without swinging the leg.
