Instructions: Sit in the leg press with your back against the angled back pad. Place your toes and the balls
of your feet at the bottom edge of the platform with your heels hanging off. Set your feet about
shoulder width apart. Push the weight up until your knees are just slightly bent. This is your
starting position. Next, allow the platform to push your toes back towards you until you have
completed a comfortable stretch. Moving only your feet and ankles, press the weight up as
high as you can go on your toes. Hold for one second and contract your calves. Repeat for the
number of reps assigned.
Note:You don't have to unlock the hooks for this movement.
Don't jerk the weight up. Use a slow controlled movement. Don't let your legs fully straighten. This
will prevent knees from hyper extending.
