Pick up a dumbbell in one hand and stand on the platform (you can use any type of platform as long as it allows you to perform a full calf raise and is near something that you can hold onto for support). Place the ball of the same foot (if you are holding the dumbbell in your right hand, use your right foot) on the edge of the platform with your heel hanging off the edge. Hold on to something with your opposite hand in order to support your body and then move the weight by coming up on your toe as high as you can. Squeeze your calf at the top, pause briefly and then return back to the starting position. Repeat the motion for each leg.
Make sure to keep a slight bend in your leg in order to avoid stressing your knee joint. As with all calf exercises, make sure to use a full range of motion by fully extending and flexing your calves as you lift and lower the weight.
