The calf raise is an exercise that most people will have come across. Any type of step can be used to carry out this exercise.
To ensure a full contraction of the calf muscle during the exercise imagine breaking the exercise down into 2 segments.
1. Raise heels up
2. Push front of ankle forwards at top of raise.
Aim for 12 repetitions x 4. It will depend on the strength regime you are on as to how many times per week you may need to do this. It will most commonly vary between every day and twice per week. To add weight either hold a weight in your hand, a bag with items in it in your hand or perhaps a rucksack with books in it.
