Reverse Calf Raises


  • This movement is performed simply on a block and your body weight.
  • Stand on the block with only your heels. Grab onto something sturdy for balance.
  • Be sure to have your knees slightly bent. With your heels on the block, lower your toes as low as you can, feeling a stretch in the front of your lower leg. Now, lift up your toes as high as you can, contract.
  • Slowly lower your toes back down to the starting position and repeat the movement.


  • If you find it too easy to do the suggested repetitions, keep doing repetitions until you cannot do any more.
