Muscles worked: Calves
Instructions: Sit in the leg press with your back against the angled back pad. Place one foot with your toes and the ball
of your foot at the bottom edge of the platform with your heel hanging off. Push the weight up
until your knee is 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 foot and ankle, press the weight up as high as you can go on your toes. Hold for one second
and contract your calf. Repeat for the number of reps assigned. Do the same with your other calf.
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 leg fully straighten. This
will prevent knees from hyper extending.
