How to do a Single Leg Standing Calf Raise (Dumbbell)

  1. Grab a moderately-heavy dumbbell with your left hand and position your right foot on the calf raise platform. The front half of your foot should be on the platform, and your heel should be in the air. You can also perform this movement on stairs.
  2. Grab onto something for balance with your right hand, straighten your back and bend your left leg.
  3. Inhale and push through your right foot by engaging your calf. Elevate yourself as much as you can.
  4. Hold the top position for a second as you exhale and slowly lower yourself by allowing your ankle to flex.
  5. Go down as much as you can – you should feel an intense stretch in your calf muscle at the bottom.
  6. Keep repeating.
  7. Once you’re finished, grab the dumbbell with your right hand and do the movement with your left leg.
