Barbell Standing Calf Raise

Shop Fitness Gear @ Sears:

This exercise strengthens your calves. Try to keep your legs as straight as possible while performing raises. If your knees are bent, then you are also working your quadriceps.

1. Stand on a step with feet hip-width apart, holding a barbell behind your back, rested on your shoulders, with hands slightly more than shoulder-width apart, elbows bent out to sides and palms facing forward.
2. Move to back of step so heels are hanging off the edge, balls of feet are on step.
3. Keeping upper body still, rise onto tiptoes; lower.
