- Position lower back and hips under upper pad. Place forearms
on supports. Position toes and balls of feet on calf block with
arches and heels extending off. Straighten knees.
- Raise heels by extending ankles as high as possible. Lower
heels by bending ankles until calves are stretched. Repeat.
- Position upper pad just below lowest range of motion. Keep
knees straight throughout exercise or bend knees slightly only
during stretch. Quadriceps serve as synergists muscle if knees
are bent slightly during stretch.
- No significant stabilizers
