Single leg calf raise off step

How you execute a calf raise will dramatically affect how you target specific muscles and can also help improve foot mechanics.

The most common mistake people make is that they don’t focus on pushing off or through their big toe. They end up going around them or just keep the pressure on the outside of their foot. For best results we recommend trying with your shoes off so that you can see what your foot is doing.

Start slow and controlled on two legs and progress to one. A good way to bridge this progression is go up on 2 feet and down only on 1. Aim to complete 2-4 sets of 8-12 reps per side.
