Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /home/critical/public_html/exercises/calf-raises-stairs.htm on line 69

Leg Exercise: Calf Raises
Proper Exercise Technique
Place the ball of one foot on the edge of a block or stair. Wrap the other foot behind the lower leg that is positioned on the block. All weight should be on the standing foot. Use a support for balance and slowly lower the heel of the working leg as low as possible; then rise up on the toe until the calf is fully flexed. Lower and repeat. This exercise maybe varied by holding a dumbbell in the hand on the same side of the working leg.
