Calf Raises - To develop the overall mass of the calves muscles
1) Stand with your toes on the block of
a Standing Calf Raise machine, your heels extended out into space.
2) Hook your shoulders under the pads
and straighten your legs, lifting the weight clear of the support.
3) Lower your heels as far as possible
toward the floor, keeping your knees slightly bent throughout the
standing calf raises movement in order to work the lower area of the
calves muscles as well as the upper, and feeling the muscles
stretch to the maximum. (Get a block that is high enough so that you can
get a full stretch when you lower your heels)
4) From the bottom of the standing calf
raises movement, come up on your toes as far as possible.
5) The weight should be heavy enough to
exercise the calves muscles, but no so heavy that you cannot come all
the way up for most of your repetitions..
When you are too tired to do complete
repetitions, finish off the set with a series of partial movements to
increase the intensity of the exercise.
