Calves - Dumbell Calf Raises

Calves - Dumbell Calf Raises
Dumbbell calf raises will get those calves building and toning even quicker than regular calf raises, by getting them working hard.


  • Isolation Exercise
  • Main muscle targeted – Calves

Male | Female


Stand tall, legs shoulder width apart, with a dumbbell in each hand. Your back should be straight, and your head facing forward. Breathe out as you raise your heels and extend through your ankle and toes until your heels are as far off the ground as possible. Return slowly to the starting position, try to avoid bouncing or landing suddenly.

Why it’s good:

With the extra weight, you can really get the calves stretched and working, and get the results you want quicker.

What to watch out for:

If you’re having trouble balancing, try moving your feet a little wider.
