The following post demonstrates isometric strengthening of one of the calf muscles, the Gastrocnemius.


  • Sitting on your bottom extend the legs out against a wall or step
  • With the target limb, press the forefoot into the step without letting the ankle joint move
  • Keep the knee pressing into the ground to maintain a straight leg
  • Relax the pressure from the forefoot and repeat as per Physiotherapist guidelines
  • Ensure you’re sitting upright on the sit bones and not collapsing through the chest
