Standing DB Calf Raise - Images
1. Stand with your torso upright holding two dumbbells in your hands by your sides. Place the ball of
the foot on a sturdy and stable wooden board (that is around 2-3 inches tall) while your heels
extend off and touch the floor. This will be your starting position.
2. With the toes pointing either straight (to hit all parts equally), inwards (for emphasis on the outer
head) or outwards (for emphasis on the inner head), raise the heels off the floor as you exhale by
contracting the calves. Hold the top contraction for a second.
3. As you inhale, go back to the starting position by slowly lowering the heels.
4. Repeat for the recommended amount of times.
Note: As you become stronger you may need to use wrist wraps to avoid having the dumbbells slip out of your hands.
