Calf raises with weight
Perform the same movement as before with a weight in each hand. Once you’re comfortable with these, try doing them on a step for more range of motion.
Split stance Romanian deadlift
Perform the same movement as with the regular deadlift, but this time with one foot slightly ahead of the other. Remember, your spine should stay in a fixed position throughout the entire movement.
From a standing start, step forward into a deep lunge, with your upper body remaining stable and upright. Now stand up and step into a lunge on the other leg.
Sideways crab with resistance band
As before, squat down to full depth (as low as is comfortable) but this time take a sideways step to one side before standing.
Unilateral bridge with resistance band
From the same starting position, straighten one leg to lift the foot off the floor and push your hips upwards, performing the same movement as before, with one leg off the ground.
The running man to toes
Perform a full standing running man as before, but this time press up onto the toes of your standing leg when at the end of the movement, for more emphasis on your calf muscles.
