Barbell Standing Calf Raise

How To do Barbell Standing Calf Raise

1. With the barbell on the back of your shoulders, stand on a pad with steps. With your feet hip-width apart, position your heels off the floor.

2. Slowly raise your heels as high as possible. At this point, pause for a while as if you are squeezing your calf muscles.

3. Slowly lower your heels and return to the starting position.
