This version of a Calf Raise allows you to Exercise each Leg Individually
Welcome to our Seated One Leg Calf Raise Exercise Instruction Guide! On this page you'll learn how to do the Seated One Leg Calf Raise using the correct technique. Below you'll find pictures, exercise instructions, and tips on how to get the most out of this and other calf exercises.
Like many dumbbell exercises, this version of a calf raise allows you to exercise each leg individually. Exercising muscle groups individually helps to ensure symmetry as one side cannot "carry" the other.
To Perform This Exercise:
Place a block or two to three weight plates on the floor about one foot in front of a bench.
Sit on the bench with a dumbbell across your upper thigh and the balls of one foot on the block.
Slowly raise and lower your toe up as high as possible without lifting your foot off the block.
