Want calves like Coach Rebecca? Follow Coach Kristie’s demonstration of Calf Raises, this week’s Exercise of the Week.
Calf raises can be done anywhere without the need of additional equipment. Stand with the balls of your feet on a stair. If you need help balancing use a wall or something stable to help with support. Slowly raise up, hold for 2-5 counts, slowly lower, and repeat. Start with 3 sets of 10 reps, work your way to 3 sets of 18. For increased difficulty do these exercises while balancing on one leg vs. both.
