Everybody and their neighbor probably has done standing calf raises at some point, but some people feel like a ship in heavy sea when doing them (including moi) or tend to give themselves a little momentum.
At a gym you have various machines at your disposal that will take care of balance and momentum problems, but but for those that train at home this is where seated calf raises can be useful. You can do these with a barbell across your legs, but I prefer them with a dumbbell and one calf at a time.
Even if you don’t have problems with the standing variant, you might still try them seated to put something fresh into your workouts.
