Eccentric Calf Raise

Eccentric Calf Raise

This exercise prevents a lot of lower leg injuries by increasing strength and mobility. If you suffer from Achilles or calf injuries, this exercise may be for you.

Preparation: Start on your toes, standing as tall as possible with a slight bend in the knees. You can perform this exercise on the ground or on a step. Use a railing or wall for balance if necessary.

Execution: Slowly lower your heel to the ground or an inch below the step. We are looking for a 3-5 count on the way down and a 1-count coming up. Pause for a 1-count at the top and repeat 10-15 times.

Notes: Once you feel comfortable completing this exercise on both feet, you can perform this exercise on one leg to make it more challenging.
