Calf Raises (seated)

Muscle Groups Worked:

Calves

How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start with your legs bent, lock the machine very tightly on your knees.  Keep your feet slightly pointed inward, level with the bottom platform, and your knees slightly closer inward than your feet.

2) Raise the weight upward, move the blocking support, and lower it as much as possible.

3) Raise the weight upward maximally, and return the blocking support at this point when the exercise is done.

Notes: Don’t use momentum coming up and down, remember to go with a light enough weight that you can get onto the tips of your toes. ┬áThis exercise can be combined with a type of “burnout” that can aid in building the muscle.
