How to Do Calf Raises

Calf raise are great workouts for your calf muscles. Do them one leg at a time to hyper-focus the exercise on each calf.

With one leg up in the air, stand up on your toes of the other foot, and hold the position for a second or two. Slowly come back down. Don’t rush.

This exercise requires balance, so it might take some practice to get used to. Take your time and go slow. If you feel wobbly, just put both feet down, regain your balance, and try again.

Switch legs when you get tired.

A few keys to remember:

· Progress gradually. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Listen to your body. When you need a rest, rest.

· A solid program must train both the upper and lower body.

· Know why you are performing each exercise. Set goals and lift weights because you want to, not because someone wants you to.

· Always breathe during a repetition and go through a full range of motion.

· Always consult with your family doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

    Umm on the main page it says start by doing one circuit then do the second one, start with one set of 10 repititions per circuit and gradually improve until you can do three sets…Does that mean do each excercise 30 times or the set 3 times…?
