Leg Press Calf Raise


  1. Leg Press Calf Raise
    Set up in a leg press machine and place your feet at the bottom of the foot plate at shoulder width so that only the balls of your feet are on the plate. Remove the safeties and allow the weight to flex your ankles slowly until you feel a stretch in your calves.
  2. 800 leg press calf raise1
    Extend your ankles to raise the weight back up.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Go as heavy as possible here while your calves are fresh, and set the safety pins high up for peace of mind. It’s OK to use a little bit of momentum from the quads to complete the last rep or so of a set.
