Standing Calf Raises calves

Starting Position: Using, you guessed it ... a standing calf-raise machine, position yourself so the balls of your feet are on the platform and the pads which transfer the weight are on top of your shoulders. Don't hunch over.

The Exercise: Without bending at your hips or knees, slowly lower the weight, using a count of "I am building my Body-/r;/-LIFE." and stretch your calf muscles as far as you can. Hold them in thai lower position for a count of one. Then lift the weight up as high as you can, and hold the contraction for another count of one.

Don't let your back hunch over. Keep your shoulders squared, your chin up, and your face forward.
