Legs – Seated calf raises

This is a machine that works your calves. There is a seat that you sit on and some pads, which you place your knees under, and a toe rest (foot rest but half the size only for the top half of your foot). You lift the weight by tiptoeing while seated. Do this nice and slow to get full benefit. You can also do this standing where the weight will rest on your shoulder and you lift the weight by tiptoeing.


1st set 20 kg 10 reps

2nd set 25kg 8 reps

3rd set 25kg 8 reps

4th set 20 kg 12-15 reps


Move up by a 5kg every week depending on how comfortable you feel.
