Calf Raises Hold

Baby Stroller Calf Raises Hold

Calf raises are a great exercise for both men and women. Nobody wants asymmetrical muscle tone between upper and lower leg muscle groups. This versatile micro-workout can be made more intense by standing on the edge of a curb while you’re out pushing the baby stroller. You’ll feel the benefits of this version of calf raises when you hold the position for much longer than you would with traditional calf raises.

Instructions:

First, we want you to warm your calves with a brief walk and gentle stretches. This will help prevent the onset of cramping as you flex your calves while doing this workout. Find flat ground or make it more intense by standing with your toes on the leading edge of a curb. You’ll mimic the mechanics of a traditional calf raise as you raise your heels off the ground and stand on your tip-toes. Instead of dropping back to the ground after two seconds, this micro-workout requires you to hold the elevated position for 5-10 seconds.
