Exercises to target the inner (medial) calf muscles

🐮Exercises to target the inner (medial) calf muscles🎯

The calf muscle is called the triceps surae because it is actually made up of THREE different muscles: the medial & lateral gastrocnemius & the soleus. Injury or weakness to any of these calf muscles can therefore necessitate specific exercises to target the relevant muscles.

Here are some exercise options to target the inner calf:

🎯Calf raises with Toes turned outwards

🎯Calf raises with 1st toe off the edge of a step/weight plate

🎯Pulses with 1st toe off the edge of a step/weight plate

🎯Hopping on the spot with a band pulling at 45 degrees posterior medial
