The Seated Calf-Raise is a resistance exercise designed to develop the calves, shins and lower legs muscles. Our example is shown using the GSCR349 Seated Calf Raise Machine.
START by sitting on the seat pad and setting the balls of your feet on the foot plates. Lower your heels as far as you can then adjust the knee pads so that they rest on top of your knees but secure your leg in place without any spacing.
Push from the balls of your feet, raising your heels as high as you can. Pause, then slowly return to the starting position.
Variations of this exercise include:
