How To Perform Exercise

The standing calf raise exercise uses a machine to target the lower calf muscles and is used by beginners for proper form.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing up straight with your toes on the footpads of the machine and adjust your shoulder so that they are rested underneath the upper pads.

2.) Slowly raise up on the balls of your feet so that your heels are lifted off of the pad and hold this position for a count.

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