The Standing Calf Press is a great exercise that isolates the calf muscles, in particular, the gastrocnemius which is above the other portion of the calf muscle, the soleus.
Watch the HACK SQUAT CALF RAISE: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform HACK SQUAT CALF RAISE:
1. Place the balls of your feet firmly on the platform and grab the handles with your hands.
2. Toe positioning can play a role in which part of the gastrocnemius you’re training. With your toes straight, you’re targeting the overall gastrocnemius. With toes in, you’re targeting the outside, and with toes out, you’re targeting the inside.
3. Keeping your legs straight, press the balls of your feet through the platform to raise as high as you can.
4. Feel a good contraction, then under control, lower your heels to feel a good stretch at the bottom of the lift.
