Seated Barbell Calf Raises

This exercise works the calf muscles.  Specifically the lower calf ( soleus ).

Implementation:  (A)  Sit down on a chair or a bench, grasp a barbell and place it on the end of your thighs, near the knee area.  Underneath your feet you should have a block to elevate your feet with.  You can use anything in your home for a platform, ex:  a board of any kind, some books, plates, anything to elevate your heels.  Now place your toes on the platform and allow your heels to lower toward the ground.  (B)  With your heels lowered, press onto your toes until your calves are completely contracted!  Pause and then lower for a complete stretch.
