Hold a dumbbell in one hand, and place the balls of your feet from the same side of your body comfortably on a wooden block. The arch and heel of your foot should not be on the block. You may also press of the ground if you do not have access to a 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.
Use your opposite hand for stability, grabbing the rails of a squat rack or similar rack or machine.
