Lower Leg Exercises

Exercises with your lower legs as the primary target:

  • Calf Press - Bodyweight

    You can strengthen your calves with this exercise anywhere: on the floor or on the edge of a step, with or without added resistance.

  • Calf Press - Free Weight

    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.

  • Calf Press - Stability Ball

    Although you do not need the ball to work your calves in this manner, this exercise is a good way to bust boredom or just incorporate the ball into your entire workout.

  • Calf Press - Resistance Tube

    This is a fun way to incorporate the tube into your calf workout so that calves do not get left out of your resistance training circuit.

  • Calf Press - Machine

    This is a great alternative to strengthen your calves without putting too much pressure on your spine or shoulders as with some calf machines.

    These simple ankle movements can be done anytime, anywhere, and can help prevent ankle sprains and possibly ankle breaks.
