The Single Leg Calf Raise is a lower body exercise that primarily targets the calves. This is an isolation exercise which is well suited to beginner lifters.
- If you find it hard to balance, gently hold on to a stable object, but try not to push down on it as this will make it easier for your calves.
- Stand on a step with the front of one foot.
- Lower your body down by relaxing your calf muscle until your heel is below the step.
- Raise your body up slowly by squeezing your calf muscle and repeat until you’ve completed all the reps on one leg before switching to the other leg.
