How to Do a Calf Raise | Sexy Legs Workout


A great toning exercise is a standing calf
raise. So, basically, you can use dumbbells or you
can just use nothing. If you want to, you can put your hands on
your hips, put them behind your head. Or, if you’re against a wall, you can use
a wall or a chair for stability. So, basically, you’re going to have hands
by your side if you’re using dumbbells, and you’re going to lift up onto the balls of
your feet. So, lift up, squeeze the calves, and down. So, make sure while you’re doing this that
you’re keeping your shoulders back, your core is tight, and you’re standing straight, nice
and tall. Alright. We don’t want any rounding. We want to come up, hold for about one, two
seconds, and then just come down. We’re doing this for about 15 to 20 reps,
and by the time you hit 15 you should definitely be feeling a burn. And when you do this, I would do probably
two to three sets of 12 to 15 reps. If you go up to 20 and feel the burn, that’s
even better. Another variation of the standing calf raise
is if you have a box at home or a step, you could even use the stairs. Basically, you get even more of a full range
of motion if you’re standing on a step. So, as you come up on a step, you come down
and your heels are slightly going to go lower than the floor. So, that gives you even more of an angle to
come up and more of a squeeze. So, you can add that. It just makes it more advanced. So, up and down, just like that. But you can use a step or a box or whatever
you have at home, or at the gym. And it just makes it even more advanced so
you get even more of a burn. And there you go. That’s a great toning exercise called the
standing calf raise.

    Will this give that bump on the calves? I really would rather have slim legs so I want to know if calf lifts can tone them rather than make them muscular.

    isn't the knee supposed to remain slightly flexed to prevent improper stretching on the soft tissues? Her knee looks locked to me…

    dont roll the ankles out like her. takes tension of the muscle and puts it through the skeleton making it less effective. bad form. keep the weight on your big toe
