45-DEGREE CALF RAISES

45-Degree Calf Raises

Alternate Name: -
START POSITIONEXECUTION
Set up on the 45-degree leg press by placing your feet close together at the bottom of the platform with only your toes on the platform. Your back will be comfortably resting on the rest pad as will your head. Get ready to unhook the safety mechanism to begin your initial raise. This is your starting position.Unhook the safety lever and allow the weight to push your feet back before you push it up with your toes. When pushing up, focus on locking out your legs and only using your toes to press the weight up. Once at the top, release the weight back down slowly as far down as it is comfortable for you.

Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.

DODON'T
  • Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
  • Keep your head on the rest pad; looking up at your feet may strain your neck muscles
  • Don't bend your knees in an attempt to push the weight with your legs; keep your legs locked-out (completely straight) at the knees

This is one of the best exercises that you can do for your calves. The incline leg press is also very comfortable and allows you to completely isolate the calf muscles. The movement will shock and awe your calf muscles into growth because the incline leg press machine is very safe to use even when loaded really heavy.
