How To Perform Exercise

The seated calf raise exercise is one of the simplest and most effective calf workouts.

Steps :

1.) Start off sitting at a calf raise machine, putting the balls of your feet on the footpad and your thighs under the leg pad above your knees as this will be your starting position..

2.) Unlock the bar and slowly raise your toes up as high as possible, feeling a stretch in your calf muscles.

3.) Once you reach the top position, hold for a count then return back to the start.

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