Standing Dumbbell Calf Raise - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Place a block or sturdy board on the floor.

Step 2

Hold a dumbbell in each hand.

Step 3

Stand up straight with your arms extended on your sides while holding the dumbbells.

Step 4

Step on the board with only the balls of your feet touching it (toes pointing forward and out) while your heels extend off. Keep your legs straight with your knees slightly bent. Your knees should be stationary but not locked all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.

Step 5

Raise your heels as high as you can by extending your ankles and contracting your calves. Exhale as you do this.

Step 6

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

Step 7

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
