Is it safe to point your toes inward or outward when doing calf raises? Does it help muscle development to do so? Google is giving me conflicting input X_X
Buffhunk64 saidAs I have discovered on this site, no one likes to hear the truth especially if it conflicts with deeply held beliefs reinforced by various non-professional websites. That being said, the proper foot positioning for any leg exercise is lining up your middle toe so it points straight forward, making sure your knee is aligned with that middle toe. In this position, you get the proper muscle contraction and will not put strain on any knee ligaments or your ankle joint.
While I do not work for some body building web site, this is the information I have received in attaining my personal trainer certifications....again not as reliable as a website trying to sell protein shakes, but my clients like the results they get.
