Dumbbell Seated Calf Raise

How To Do A Dumbbell Seated Calf Raise Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The dumbbell seated calf raise is a great exercise to target your calves.

If you don’t have access to a seated calf machine, here’s a dumbbell seated calf raise you can do using just a seat, a step, and a pair of dumbbells.

To get started:

  1. Place a riser, a board, or a small step in front of a seat.
  2. Sit down on the seat, place the balls of your feet on the riser, and set a dumbbell vertically on each knee, while holding them in place with your hands.
  3. To begin the movement, slowly lower your heels as far as your can, without resting them on the floor.
  4. Push through the balls of your feet to raise your heels as high as you can.
  5. Make sure you feel the squeeze.
  6. Repeat.
