Barbell Seated Calf Raise

Step 1

Sit down on a bench with feet shoulder-width apart. Lay a barbell across your thighs, holding it with an overhand grip (palms facing down). This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Holding the barbell firmly against your thighs, press into the balls of your feet and elevate your heels off the floor as high as you can.

Step 3

Inhale. Lower your heels to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
