Help With Standing Calf Raises

  1. Help With Standing Calf Raises

    I want to do dumbell standing calf raises,but my gym doesnt have a calf block. any ideas? just on the ground? can i use a 25 or 45lb plate?

  2. Yea you can use a plate but be carefull. Also can use the small steps if your good with balance although I have to use either the leg press or barbells cause I used to run and my calves are stronger than what I can grip

  7. all interesting idead.i have a feeling i will fall off if im on a platform tho

  8. thats why you can balance yoursrlf by putting your hand on the bar

  9. wait we put your hang on the bar? dont you have a dumbbell in each hand?

  10. i do single leg, so i only use obe dumbell, sure it sucks holding 90,s but it helps the grip strength too

  11. use the spotting flatform from a shoulder press.....i prefer using a barbell than dumbbell but whatever floats your boat
