FHL Calf Raise

This is a calf raise that focuses on the strength of the big toe / ball mount of the foot!


2 Legs — Lift and lower 25x. With each rep, pause for 2 seconds at the top (heels lifted) and 2 seconds at the bottom (heels lowered).

If that’s too easy, lift from one foot with the other leg crossed behind. 25x with the two second pause at the top and bottom. Start with your weaker leg, do as many reps as you can. Do the same number of reps on the opposite leg. Return to the weaker leg and continue until you’ve done 25x on each leg.


— Stand at arms length from the wall and press your hands into the wall.
— Walk your feet back and find an angle where your legs are completely straight and your heels just begin to lift from the floor.
— Keep the legs absolutely straight as you move. Press into the big toes and lift your heels up as high as you can.
— Pause 2 seconds at the top and then 2 seconds at the bottom, each rep.
