Calf Raise on Step
The calf raise is a widely used exercise to strengthen the calf muscles. There are many variations and resistance machines are also available.
- Start on a step with only the forefoot on the step, the heels off the back.
- Rise up onto the toes and then slowly back down.
- To make this harder it can be performed with a weight in each hand, barbell over the shoulders or on a single leg.
