Don Peters Alternate Calf Heel Raise

Don Peters Alternate Calf Heel Raise

This exercise calls for weight belt with a heavy dumbbell hung between the legs, and a 3-1/2 inch to 4 inch calf block.

Assume position on calf block with weight hung between legs, and the balls of the feet spaced about 6 to 8 inches apart.

Hold onto a table, pole, or lean against the wall with the arms outstretched. Raise the left heel until the calf is fully contracted.

At the top of the motion, bend the knee and shift the weight to the right leg and lower on the right leg. Raise on the right leg, and at the top, or contracted, position, bend the knee and transfer the weight to the left leg and lower with this leg.

This is a very concentrated peaking exercise, and I know of no other gym in the country that teaches it.


On your off days (Upper Body days), stand against a wall, or hold on to a bar, table, etc., and perform three sets of 100 reps (Body Weight only) calf raises, feet held 4 inches apart, and as you raise heels, bring the heels together and raise on the big toe area of the ball of the foot.
