2-up-1-down calf raise

Runner's World (UK) - - Flexible Thinking -

1. Stand on a step, with both heels un­sup­ported.

2. Take one foot away, and lower on a straight leg for 3-5-sec­onds. At the end of your range, push back up us­ing both feet. Progress by adding load. Do 8-12 reps on each leg.

Now do a set per side with the knee of your work­ing leg bent. ‘ We don’t run with a straight knee and it’s im­por­tant to ac­ti­vate the same fi­bres – at the same joint an­gles – as in run­ning,’ says biome­chan­ics pro­fes­sor Tony Blaze­vich.
