Precor Seated Calf Raise

There are two very common types of calf raises that you see in gyms, the standing calf raise, and this one, the Precor seated calf raise.  The seated calf raise works your entire calf but puts more of a focus on the soleus, which is located on the outside and inside part of the calf.
