Calve Exercise Machine

I am looking for a lightweight mobile exercise machine focused on the calve area - something in the line of the Progym (although discontinued) - Many thanks!

Hi mimi

For the calves, body weight is enough. It's a small muscle group and so if you stand on the edge of a step and do calf raises, with your heel dropping below the level of the step each time, that's plenty of resistance. I'd go with that, not a machine.

Good luck
