Calf Raises

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Hamstrings


Step 1: Use a bleacher, bench, curb or any study elevated surface. Step onto the surface with feet together or, at most, hip-width apart. The chest is upright and open while the heels are hanging off the edge.


Step 2: Raise up to the balls of your feet without leaning forward. Roll through the movement to keep your balance.


Step 3: With control, release the heels to the starting position. If you want, you can drop the heels just a bit lower to give the calves a stretch.
