The leg press calf raise is one of my favourite calf exercises. I find this exercise to be very natural to the movement of the calf and becuase of this, it's a very comfortable movement to do. It's also one of the most effective exercises you can do for your calves. The movement keeps constant tension on your calves and works the whole area.

Position for the leg press calf raise

1. While seated on a leg press, place you’re the balls of your feet about 1 feet (30 cm) apart under the leg press plate. Your buttocks should be supported on the seat and your back pressed firmly against back rest.

2. Keep head should be straight and your slightly angel your toes outward.

Execution of the leg press calf raise

1. Allow your heels to drop as far as possible.

2. Raise your heels until your calves are fully contracted.
