Standing Calf Raise

The standing calf raise is an isolation exercise that trains an often forgotten muscle group: the back of the lower leg (aka the calf). This one's easy: assume the standard standing position then stand on your toes (keep your legs straight) until you feel the burn (aim for a 5-10 seconds). Do 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps.

Pros:
  • Can be done anywhere.
Cons:
  • None.
