in Calves Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Calves
Sit on a leg press machine. Extend your legs upward until your feet touch the platform. Your legs should be straight and don’t lock your knees. Your feet should be shoulder-width away from each other. Your upper body and your legs should be perpendicular with each other.
Carefully lower down your feet so that your heels and balls of the feet extend off. Your toes should be facing either forward, outwards, or inwards. It’s important that you keep your knees steady and straight all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.
Raise your heels by extending your ankles for as high as you can and putting strength in your calves. Once you’re at your limit, pause for a moment. Exhale as you do this.
Slowly go back to your starting position by lowering your heels. Inhale as you do this.
Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is reached.
