How to do this exercise?
Keep your back straight, your legs together, and your arms close to your body.
Step up and squat until you form a 90-degree angle.
Go back to your starting position and then repeat the same with your other leg.
Like with squat, after a while add some weights.
Standing calf raise
This is the best calf exercise.
You just need a doorstep for this exercise.
What’s important here is to raise your heels so that you stand on your tiptoes and then to lower your heels to feel a stretch in your calves.
