Use either 2 dumbbells, or place a barbell on your back as if you were preparing to squat. You may also use a standing calf machine for this exercise. Place the balls of your feet comfortably on a block. The arch and heel of your feet should not be on the block. Using your calf muscles, press the balls of your feet into the block and lift your body until your calves are fully extended. Slowly lower your body, and repeat the exercise. If you are a beginner and feel unbalanced during this exercise, perform calf raises off the ground and not on a block.
