Standing Barbell Calf Raise - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Adjust the height of the barbell on the rack according to your height. Load it up with weights according to your preference.

Step 2

Step under the barbell’s handle and let the back of your shoulder touch it. Keep your position.

Step 3

Hold the barbell with both hands on each side.

Step 4

Lift it off the rack. Push it with your legs and straighten your upper body to make it easier to lift.

Step 5

Walk away from the rack and stand up straight. Your legs should be straight with your knees slightly bent. Your feet should be shoulder-width away from each other with your toes pointing forward and out. Keep your head up all throughout this exercise to avoid going off balance. This is your starting position.

Step 6

Raise your heels as high as you can by extending your ankles and contracting your calves. Your knee should be stationary all throughout this exercise. Exhale as you do this movement.

Step 7

Pause for a moment then slowly lower your heels until you’re back to your starting position. Inhale as you do this.

Step 8

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
