calf raise

calf raise

1. The calf raise can be done using the calf machine in the gym or by using a dumbbell but you must remember to hold the dumbbell on the same side you are doing the raise.

2. You will need to steady yourself while you do the raise if you are using the dumbbell, so make sure you are supporting yourself with your other hand.
