One at a Time
Single legged calf raises tone the calves. Isolating each leg prevents you from using the other calf during the lifts. Stand up straight, lift your right foot off the floor and shift your weight onto your left foot. Bend your left knee slightly, tighten your abdominal muscles and gaze forward. Push through your left heel and lift onto the ball of your left foot. Lift as high as possible, then lower your left heel to the floor. Shift your weight onto your left heel and repeat. Complete 12 to 15 repetitions, stopping when your calves fatigue.
