Bent Knee Calf Holds

Bent knee calf holds are isometric exercises that strengthen the calf muscles without movement, focusing on stability.


Teaching point:

  • Stand on a step with your knee bent
  • Hold the position
  • Perform 5 sets of 15- second holds, increasing to 5 sets of 45 seconds
  • 70% max voluntary contraction

Note: This may feel more difficult than the straight leg hold and works the lower soleus muscle more.
