How To Perform the Seated Calf Raise

  1. Sit on a seated calf raise machine with your feet flat on the foot platform and knees bent at a 90-degree angle.
  2. Place the padded lever across your thighs just above your knees and adjust it to fit comfortably.
  3. Release the safety bar and lower your heels slowly until you feel a stretch in your calves.
  4. Press through the balls of your feet to raise your heels as high as possible, contracting your calf muscles.
  5. Hold the top position for a moment, then slowly lower your heels back to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining a controlled and steady pace.
