Calf Press - Free Weight
Other types of Calf Press: Bodyweight Machine Resistance Tube Stability Ball
Stand with your feet hip width apart and hold 2 dumbbells (or other weight if you do not have dumbbells). Straighten your legs without locking your knees and engage your abs.
Press your heels up through the center of your ankle as high as you can without rolling to the outside of your feet, then lightly touch the floor with your heels before you raise up again.
TIP: If you want assistance with your balance, hold only one dumbbell and hold lightly onto a wall with the other hand. Switch hands halfway through, or switch hands on your second set.
