Step Calf Raise

Working one calf at a time, place one foot on the top of a raised step platform, ideally with your thigh horizontal to the floor.

Lift and lower the raised heel, or even both heels with all your weight pushed down onto the knee of the raised foot, in order towork the calf muscles - if you have poor balance hold onto a secure object whilst doing this exercise.

Remember to keep your back straight and head up throughout the exercise, aiming to hold in the upper phase of the movement for 2 - 3 seconds prior to returning back down to repeat.

Focus on using your upper body to generate the resistance for the raised foot.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
