In this video I will be showing you the correct way to perform the seated calf raise machine. One benefit of calf raises is to improve muscular strength. The muscles in your calf are your gastrocnemius and soleus muscles. The gastrocnemius, the larger of the two muscles, runs from the bottom of your thigh bone down to your Achilles tendon. Your soleus, located underneath your gastrocnemius, starts at the top of your tibia in your lower leg and also attaches to your Achilles tendon. Calf raises will not only strengthen these two muscles, they will also give definition to your lower leg, improving it’s appearance.

Seated Calf Raise:
Type: Strength
Main Muscle Worked: Calves
Equipment: Machine
Level: Intermediate
