What I’ll be performing, here, is Seated Calf
Raises. Usually, you’ll do this exercise on a machine. Since we don’t have that particular
machine here, what I’m going to go ahead and do is show you an alternate way to do this.
You’ll put a plate on your shoulders, or on your thighs, I apologize about that, on our
thighs, here. And, pretty much do the same movement with your feet that you would do
for a standing calf raises or any other calf raises. You want to bring it all the way up
to your tippy toes, and then bring it down for a good stretch. Bring it all the way up,
flex it on top, bring it down for a good stretch. Another thing that can help out is if you
put a two by four under your toes, it will give you a better stretch when you bring it
down. So, again, bring it all the way up, bring it down. You might want to put your
fingers around the plate and around your thighs just to control it and to hold it steady.
And, that’s pretty much how you do the Seated Calf Raise.
