Calf Raises

So get working those calf Raises as a great exercise to strengthen, tone and define the calf's and lower legs. You can use a chair to balance during the calf raises if you like. Remember to stay in your comfort zone and move the legs slowly and smoothly.

  • Stand behind the chair with both hands on the back of the chair.

  • Keep your legs straight and body pright.

  • Slowly move onto your toes lifting your heels off the ground until you are on tiptoes (as long as this is comfortable for you).

  • Hold yourself up on your toes for 3-4 seconds.
  • Slowly lower your heels back down and return to the starting position.

  • Repeat the exercise 5-10 times at first, but this can be increased if you feel comfortable.
