One Legged SquatsMuscle: Quads Other: Hamstrings, CalvesType: Compound
Try to create a15-30 degree squat movement (this is much less than the typical parallel squat) rather than focusing on the calf – if you stand in the Pose position (ball of foot on the ground) you’ll get the proper emphasis on the calve without turning the exercise into a calf raise – you are trying to duplicate the range of motion actually used in running. This could be done at first holding dumb bells but ultimately you need a machine of some kind to apply resistance or you have to do conventional barbell squats. Some athletes have used the nautilus calf raise machine which allows you to do a narrow range of motion squat pulling the weight stack through a belt around your waist.
