Calf Raise on Step

 

Overview

The calf raise on a step utilizes a greater range-of-motion (ROM) than the calf raise from the floor. This increase in range-of-motion will deliver more real-world benefits, such as increased ankle flexibility and strength. This provides more stability when running or playing sports. The calf raise on a step can be used as a warm-up or cool-down exercise. It can be included in your lower-body workout to shape and define your lower legs.

Description

  • Holding onto something stable, stand with your heels hanging off the step
  • Lower your heels as far as they can go
  • Then rise up onto your toes, lifting your heels as far as they can go
  • Then lower the heels again

Mistakes

  • Bending the knee
  • Leaning forward
