How To Perform Exercise

The standing barbell calf raise helps target the lower leg muscles and build stronger legs.

Steps :

1.) Start of by placing a block or two free weight plates on the floor, then placing a weighted barbell across your back and step up so that the balls of your feet are on the block.

2.) Slowly lift your heels up off of the floor and then lower them back so that you feel as much of a stretch as possible in your calf muscles.

3.) Return to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
