Eccentric Single Leg Calf Raises

Eccentric Single Leg Calf Raises

  • HOW:  Get set-up in front of a wall or an object to use for balance. While keeping your glutes and quads tight to keep your knees straight, lift your heels off the ground in a slow and controlled manner. Then shift all your weight over to one leg. Lift the opposite foot. And slowly lower your heel back down to the ground. Repeat
 
  • FEEL:  You should feel your calves getting a workout, but also your glutes and quads working as well to help keep your legs straight.
 
  • COMPENSATION:  Go slow! Control the lowering. Do not let your knees bend as that is a different exercise. Make sure you go through your full range of motion at your ankle.
