Explosive Dumbbell Calf Raises Improves Speed And Power

Explosive dumbbell calf raises will improve your speed and power. The lower legs can provide 20% to 25% of the power needed for an explosive start. And, explosive starts can be the difference in you making the play or winning the race.

Do 3-4 sets of 25 repetitions as fast as you can. Use your toes/balls of feet to explode upward with each repetition to retrain your calf muscles to move faster.

Don't use momentum to bounce up and down. Bouncing won't generate the force you need to improve speed strength in your calf muscles.

You can work the calf muscles more frequently than other muscle groups (up to 4 times a week) because they recover faster.
