Calf Holds

The calf hold strengthening exercise is an isometric activity that enhances calf muscle strength without requiring movement.


Teaching point:

This exercise is isometric, meaning it does not involve any movement.

  • Stand on the edge of a step and allow all your weight onto one leg
  • Perform 5 sets of 15-second holds, gradually building up to 5 sets of 45 seconds

Note: You should be aiming for 70% of your maximum voluntary calf muscle contraction.
