Take your calf training to the next level, literally, with this solid and compact Calf Block. Variations include body weight calf raises, raises with dumbbells or you can place the block inside a smith machine or squat rack for greater load. Seated calf raises are also an option by placing the block in front of your bench and using a barbell or dumbbell on top of the thighs for added resistance. Although, the main usage of the calf block is for raises you can use the legs off of the side of the block to do elevated heel squats.
Why use a calf block?
The muscles of your lower limbs are very accustomed or acclimatised to the endurance loads of walking and running every day. As a result, they're very capable of responding to high volume sets compared to some other body parts. Using a calf block will allow you to perform a calf raise with a larger range of motion compared to a flat surface. By raising the foot or feet off of the ground, the heel can travel lower providing a greater range of motion whilst working the gastrocnemius, soleus, tibialis posterior, peroneus fibularis brevis and peroneus fibularis longus muscles in the calf area.
