Calves Press on Leg Machine

This exercise uses a Leg Press Machine to work your calves. You can perform this exercise along with Leg Presses.


  1. Sit down on a Leg Press Machine and press the plate up as if you were performing a leg press.
  2. Slide your feet down so that the balls of your feet are pressing against the rack (with your heels hanging free).
  3. Keeping the handles locked, press up and flex your toes and then slowly bring your toes back towards your body.
  4. Perform theses movements slowly for maximum benefit.

Note: Use a lighter weight on this exercise than you are able to lift with a leg press until you are familiar with the movements.
