Calf Raises with Side Lateral Lift
Move: Stand tall with feet together, holding medium to light weights by your sides. Lift up onto your toes, lifting the weights laterally to shoulder height. Pull your shoulder blades together and then lower the weights slowly as you lower yourself from your toes to a standing position.
Repetitions: 12 to 15.
• Keep your shoulders back and chest up. Always work on your posture before performing the move.
• Pull your shoulder blades together at the top of the move and control the weights as you lower them.
• Calf raises can be performed on a stair for more intensity.
• If the lateral raise bothers your shoulders, try turning your palms slightly upward.
