Exercise Advice:

  • This exercise is done in a standing position with your feet close together.
  • Hold a dumbbell with your right hand and use your left hand to stabilise yourself on a fixed structure such as a barbell rack or incline bench. Lift your left foot slightly off the ground and begin the exercise with your right calf muscle.
  • Push up with your foot and rock up onto your toes.
  • Be sure to really flex your calves at the top of this movement for a one-count.
  • Return to the start position and repeat until failure.
  • The initial upward movement should be slow and controlled.
