Illustration And Description

The seated calf raise

The seated calf raise is a great exercise for developing the upper part of the calf. A very simple exercise to do but you will need a seated calf machine to get the most from this exercise.

Like the standing calf raise, this exercise demands strict form and you really need to concentrate on the bottom and top portions of this movement. It is very important that you don't bounce or jerk the weight up. Always keep the weight under control and come up nice and smooth with the weight.

Come up as high as you can and really squeeze your calves.






Position for the seated calf raise

1. Sit down on the apparatus and place the balls of your feet on the platform with your knees under the pads. Grasp the handles. Unhook the safety latches for the weight.

2. Slowly drop your heels as far down as they can go.

Execution of the seated calf raise

1. Raise your heels until your calves are fully contracted. Slowly lower your heels and repeat movement.
