Seated Calf Raises

Difficulty: Beginner

  1. Get comfortable on the machine, then place your lower thighs beneath the padded lever. Place your toes and the balls of your feet onto the foot supports.
  2. Prevent the weight from slipping forward by gripping the handles, and release the safety bar. Lower the weight until your calves are extended.
  3. Push your heels up to lift the padded lever and hold the contracted position, then slowly lower back down to the starting position. Repeat.
