Seated Calf Press
Place two dumbbells on your lap and sit upright on a bench with your feet hip width apart.
Lift your heels as high as you can without rolling to the outside of your ankles, then lower to the floor.
Upright chair, two dumbbells
TIP: Resist the eccentric action, the lowering of the heels, making it as smooth as possible.
Variations for Seated Calf Press
This picture is missing but you can understand how to execute it by reading the preparation and execution.
Holding weight in your hands can fatigue your calves faster than using just your body weight. These can be done holding any kind of extra resistance: dumbbells, a backpack, or even bags of groceries while you wait for the bus.
This can be done as an alternative to the calf press machine. You can use an alternative weight, such as a weighted medicine ball, if you do not have a barbell.
