How To Perform Exercise

The barbell seated calf raise is a version of the standard calf raise that uses a block and barbell.

Steps :

1.) Start off placing a block on the floor about one foot in front of a bench.

2.) Rest a barbell across your upper thighs and then sit on the bench with the balls of your feet placed upon the block.

3.) While keeping the barbell rested across your thighs, slowly raise and lower your toes up as high as possible without lifting your foot off of the block.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
