Exercise Summary

Exercise Name: Seated One Leg Calf Raise
Main Muscle: Calves
Secondary Muscle(s): N/A
Equipment Required: Dumbbell

Exercise Description and Instruction:

Like many dumbbell exercises, this version of a calf raise allows you to exercise each leg individually. Exercising muscle groups individually helps to ensure symmetry as one side cannot “carry” the other.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Place a block or two to three weight plates on the floor about one foot in front of a bench.
  2. Sit on the bench with a dumbbell across your upper thigh and the balls of one foot on the block.
  3. Slowly raise and lower your toe up as high as possible without lifting your foot off the block.
  4. Switch feet and repeat.
