- Hang weight from dip belt around waist. Position toes and
ball of foot on calf block end of platform with heel and arch
extending off. Place hand or hands on support for balance. Lift
other leg to rear by bending knee.
- Raise heel by extending ankle as high as possible. Lower
heel by bending ankle until calf is stretched. Repeat. Continue
with opposite leg.
- Keep knee straight throughout exercise or bend knee slightly
only during stretch. Quadriceps serve as synergists muscle if
knee is bent slightly during stretch. Use lighter load if you
need to assist with hands used for support.
