Exercise # 1
The first of the eccentric calf strengthening exercises are the single leg calf raises. To do this exercise, stand with the ball of the right foot on the edge of a landing, but with the heel raised up. Gradually start lowering the heel, till your heel has gone a little lower than the level of the landing. Hold the position for a few seconds, before you release. When the heel is lowered the calf muscles will be worked, as they will concentrate on gradually lowering the body.
