in Calves Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Calves
Place a barbell on a rack. The barbell should be placed at a height that’s the same as yours. Load the barbell with weights.
Step under the handle of the barbell and let the back of your shoulder touch it.
Hold the barbell with both arms on each of your side.
Lift the barbell off the rack. Do this by pushing the barbell up with your legs.
Step away from the rack and stand up straight. Your feet should be shoulder-width away from each other. Your head should be up all throughout this exercise to avoid going off balance.
Keep your legs and back straight. Slightly bend your knees and don’t lock it. Make sure that your knees remain stationary all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.
Exhale while raising your heels as far as you can. Also flex your calves as you do this.
Once at the top, hold your position for a second.
Release and slowly lower your heels until you’re back to your starting position. Inhale as you do this.
Lift your toes as far as you can to contract your tibia muscles in the front of your calves. Exhale as you do this.
Pause for a moment then slowly lower your toes until you’re back to your starting position.
