Position 2

Use a standing calf raise machine, or stand on a block or step with a dumbbell in one hand while holding on to something for support with the other.

Lower your heels toward the floor until you feel a stretch in your calves.

Drive the balls of your feet into the foot plate and contract your calves, raising your heels as high as possible.

Control the descent on each rep.
