Single Leg Calf Raise with Dumbells

Jan 26th, 2011

1.    Stand on one leg with ball of foot on top of the step so that your heel extends off the edge. Knee is slightly bent. Hold dumbbells at your sides.

2.    Lower your heel down until your calf is stretched by bending the ankle of your supporting leg.

3.    Return to start position by pushing down through the ball of your foot.

4.    To modify this exercise for beginners, you can stand with both feet on the step, or you can stand on one leg holding a dumbbell in one hand and placing the other hand on a wall for support.
