Setup for the seated calf raise by loading up the machine with the weight you want to use. Sit on the machine with the padding on top of your thighs and the balls of your feet on the edge of the foot pad. Push up with your calves to take the weight off rack and slowly let your heels drop as far as possible. This is the starting position for the exercise. Slowly raise your heels up a high as possible. Pause and squeeze the calf muscles, then slowly lower back down as far as possible. Repeat for desired reps.
- Go through the full range of motion.
- Try the variation with one leg as well.
